thinking beyond


To ensure our students are receiving the best support, the Student Mentorship Programme was introduced in 2013.

The aim of the programme is to provide CUT students with a supportive environment that will motivate and assist them to develop to their maximum personal and academic potential.


Stress management

Confidentiality training.

Ready to take on the task.


Mentoring has been found to increase students’ academic success, social skills, self-efficacy, and the ability to refine their professional dispositions. Our CUT mentorship programme provides a framework for positive interaction between students, mentors and lecturing staff. More importantly, trained mentors provide leadership and support to students during mentoring sessions. These sessions are designed to help connect learners, provide them with information on campus resources, give them a sense of belonging and open possibilities of connectedness to the world.
