Academic Mentoring Portal

What is Academic Mentoring at LSE? 

Academic mentoring is an int­­egral part of education at LSE and critical to building an inclusive scholarly community at the School for everyone. It is also part of the LSE 2030 Strategy, the Inclusive Education Action Plan, and the Student Mental Health and Wellbeing Framework.

Academic mentors are students’ first point of contact with the academic community and it is a positive worthwhile relationship for both academics and students.

The portal is the outcome of a multi-year research project into academic support at LSE involving staff and students. To access further information please click on the tabs below with separate information and resources for staff and students:

Student Support Map

The Student Support Map is a tool to help students navigate all of the support on offer at LSE - from support with their studies, to help with finances and their wellbeing. We know students sometime ask their mentors for support about things which fall outside of academia, and the Support Map is a useful place to signpost students to as a first step.
