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 Global Summer School students ‘out-of-hours’ i.e. when they are not in class. Pastoral mentors supervise Global Summer School students during organised activities on campus and accompany them on day trips. Pastoral mentors also stay in the same halls of residence alongside Global Summer School students.

What is an Academic Mentor?

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