Mentoring Programme

The Mentoring programme, within the Centre for Open Learning, draws upon the knowledge and expertise of professional practitioners and educators within in Art & Design at the University of Edinburgh.

The programme connects your with a Mentor to allow you the space and time to engage in a focused discussion about your practice through a one-to-one meeting. Choosing to work with a Mentor can reinvigorate an artist, enabling you to navigate any challenges and plan a creative pathway to achieve your goals. No matter what stage you are at, either just starting out in the Arts, a recent graduate or professional artists, we can offer support, tailored to your individual needs.
