Brookes Connections Features

A full listing of everyone in the online community with full search facilities and instant filters.

By joining the platform, you are free to search, in-platform message and network with alumni professionals. Most alumni sync their Linked-In profile when setting up their account; thus, you will be able to view this information, and sync your own account to your profile.

A full peer-to-peer online mentoring platform.

Anyone can be a mentor and/or a mentee. There are then 2 ways to start a mentoring relationship:

  1. "Ask a Question"
    For anyone who would like to connect on a one-off basis for careers-related advice. You can search for mentors in particular industries/sectors and ask them a one-off question about anything career-related. This option is open all year round, once you’ve signed up.

  2. Advanced Mentoring Schemes
    Brookes Connections gives you the opportunity to join advanced mentoring schemes. Participation in these schemes generally involves a deeper relationship between the mentor and mentee.
