Frequently Asked Questions (for Students)
Mentorship Programme is a one-year programme commencing every November, and it is structured as a one-to-one/ one-to-two partnership between the mentor (alumni of HKSYU) and the mentee (current undergraduate student of HKSYU).
It facilitates mentees’ educational, social and personal growth through Mentorship Programme. Also, it gives a chance for students to broaden their horizons like interaction with experienced professionals and senior executives and develop stronger interpersonal communications.
Under the Mentorship Programme, mentee will participate in a range of activities, meetings with the mentor individually and alumni sharing sessions. Besides, OSA will organize some extra activities for the students to build up a strong mentor-mentee relationship.
Undergraduate students from Year 1 to 4 and in any disciplines are welcome to join the Programme.
There are certain duties and responsibilities accompanying the privilege of being a mentee. For instances, mentees are expected to attend the opening ceremony, different activities (like career workshops and sharing sessions organized by the OSA or arranged by the mentors) and submit programme survey at the end of the programme.
Mentorship Programme does not offer placement services. With Mentorship Programme, you can learn from mentors’ fruitful experience, identify career interests and goals and build social networks for future development.
All mentors are alumni of HKSYU. They are senior executives/managers with at least 5 years of work experience from various business or industries. They have extensive social and professional network and are most willing to help and devote time and effort to nurture the young generation. We will assign ONE mentor to you with respect to your interested field. Meanwhile, you can maintain network with other mentors through different gatherings or activities.
You are most welcomed to develop a long-term relationship between mentors and mentees. In our experience, some mentors and mentees are still in touch with each other for many years and the mentors would continue to arrange gatherings with the mentees of different years. The mentees also continue to meet with their mentors after completion of the Programme.
Yes, all students are most welcomed to join us again. However, priority will be given to those who join the Programme for the first time.
The participation record of Mentorship Programme will be included in the Awards and Co-curricular Achievement Transcript ACAT) if mentees fully participated in the programme activities organized by the OSA.
