Mentors discussing STEM with a lecturer

Global Summer School is supported by current Imperial students who work as either academic or pastoral mentors. They know first-hand about living and studying abroad and provide 24-hour support to students.

About Academic and Pastoral Mentors

What is a Pastoral Mentor?

A Pastoral Mentor is an Imperial student who supports and guides Summer School attendees ‘out-of-hours’. This is when the students are not on campus or studying in class. They accompany students during the organised activities on campus, day trips and will even stay in the campus accommodation alongside students.

What is an Academic Mentor?

An Academic Mentor accompanies students during class time to provide practical and hands-on support in the academic environment. These students also study a subject related to the programmes stream, so are invaluable for delivering an interactive and engaging experience.
