Welcome to CABLE

Begin your mentorship journey with us today.

CABLE (Connecting and Building Learning Experiences) is a voluntary initiative committed to break the barriers undergraduates are facing when it comes to postgraduate education.

Our flagship Research Mentorship Programme connects undergraduates interested in research with brilliant postgraduate scholars all around the world, who will go on to inspire a new generation of future researchers.

Why Join CABLE

Tailored Mentorship

The flexibility of mentorship programmes at CABLE allows Mentors to give Mentees the support that they need in order to succeed. We believe in keeping the learning content customisable for each individual mentee to maximise learning potential, but also with structured goals that keep both parties accountable for their learning.

Commitment and Support

Each Mentor is individually interviewed by our CABLE team. With our collaborative Learning Goals, our Mentees are committed to the programme and dedicated towards working towards common objectives.

Our team of Project Advisors are trained to facilitate every touchpoint in the Mentor-Mentee’s journey with CABLE , and go on to support the Mentors in creating engaging and effective mentorship programmes.

Community and Network

We believe in equipping our Mentors and Mentees with the right foundations to build their network of connections within their field of study and beyond. CABLE regularly organises events and send out newsletters to connect our members in the wider CABLE Community.

What our Mentors/Mentees say

“I joined the programme because I thought that it was a great opportunity to develop myself even more, to provide my developed skills to my mentees and to become part of a growing community in which people want to learn from each other. Luckily, my expectations were met! Since my experience was so positive I have decided to stay a Mentor during future programmes in which I am excited to meet and learn from new people across the world.

― Mentor, Lecturer at University of Twente

“I really like the way I communicate with my mentor as well as the Project Advisor because everyone is so friendly. This gave me the courage to ask “silly questions”. The whole mentorship experience was an enjoyable and stress-free learning journey for me.

― Mentee, Final Year Medical Student at The National University of Malaysia

I like that it was focused on individual development and setting individual goals. The fact that we had a learning plan and set goals definitely helped to bring some structure into the whole experience, and I felt that it was organized well across the span of the mentorship.

― Mentee, 2nd Year Psychology Student at University College London
