Gold Award Mentoring Scheme

We are pleased to announce the new Gold Award mentoring scheme, which will give Gold Award students the opportunity to be mentored by a member of the Goldsmith's alumni community.

On all schemes mentors can help mentees by sharing industry knowledge, supporting students with applications or interviews, help students to explore careers, set goals, develop contacts, and identify beneficial resources.
