How the programme works?

The Mentors who are Vietnam Chevening alumni participate as volunteers, will be able to spend time on guiding and supporting the Mentees (one Mentor – one Mentee) to identify and pursue their career goals.

The Mentees are the successful candidates selected after filtering process. Eight students have been selected for the pilot year of 2016 – 2017. The number of selected students will probably increase if there are many qualified candidates and if there are more Mentors participate as volunteers in the programme. Each selected Mentor – Mentee will have ten months working together under the programme.
