Mentors discussing STEM with a lecturer

Who will be available to support me?

Global Summer School is supported by current Imperial students who work as either Academic or Pastoral Mentors. These students have first-hand experience of living in London and studying at Imperial.

The Global Summer School programme manager directly manages the mentors and works collaboratively with the programme academics.

Academic Mentors

Academic Mentors study a subject related to one of the Global Summer School academic streams. They will support you during class time to guide you through the academic content. Academic Mentors will also be able to give you an insight into what it’s like to study at Imperial and discuss potential career paths with you. 

Pastoral Mentors

Pastoral Mentors supervise students at all times outside of class. This incudes during meal times, organised activities on campus and day trips. Pastoral Mentors also stay in the same halls of residence alongside Global Summer School students to provide 24-hour support.
