  • Mentor

      Mentoring is at the heart of the Milestone Institute’s academic programmes, providing individual support for students’ intellectual development, orientation, motivation and emotional welfare in each Year Group. With a diversified student body, Milestone is looking to broaden students’ fields of interest by reaching out to subject area experts in varied fields.

      Mentoring offers opportunities to work with the next generation of talented professionals, scholars, thinkers and change makers. Mentors support and nurture students’ talents by guiding them through important decisions and making them aware of the wide range of academic opportunities and career paths available to them. As the Milestone Programme progresses, the role of a Mentor is increasingly to focus students’ interests and support a particular academic study pathway. Academic development, advanced study, immersion in subject knowledge, development of internationally relevant skills, development of a holistic interest in the world and its affairs and interdisciplinary/problem based learning become increasingly important. A skilled Mentor can weave the various threads and layers of the Milestone Programme together to make sure that each student gets the most out of his/her Milestone experience.

      It is in this spirit that the Milestone Institute seeks to appoint highly committed and talented  professionals as Mentors, a post which demands exceptional interpersonal, management and communication skills. A strong academic background, an empathy with young people, drive and determination are all important requirements of the post. In addition, as all mentoring and teaching within the Institute is carried out in English, a full and professional level of proficiency in writing and speaking in English is essential.

      Although the Institute welcomes Mentor applications all year long, the main entry point for Mentors is before the start of a new Academic Year (Summer Term application round).

      Current Module Leaders: If you are currently teaching a module and would like to start mentoring students, please submit your application for the Mentor post via the “Mentor Application Form – Current” link below.

      Application deadline for Academic Year 2022/2023: Sunday, 6th March 2022

  • Module Leader

      Module teaching simultaneously offers orientation, immersion in a given field and space for the development of core skills in English. Currently, 125 academic Modules are offered at the Institute across the four years of  Academic Programmes, allowing students to experiment and gain direct experience of what it is like to study a particular discipline. Through this process, students also encounter a broad range of topics, methodologies, theories and ideas that support them in becoming well-rounded, critical thinkers capable of breaking down disciplinary boundaries and tackling contemporary problems. 

      Module teaching offers opportunities to work with small groups (6 – 12 students) of talented and motivated students from different backgrounds. Module Leaders inspire students towards their subject area, broadening students’ field of academic and professional interest. Beyond providing in-depth knowledge of their field, skilled Module Leaders develop students’ key academic skills, demand an active participation from their group and encourage independent learning, all of which represent the teaching philosophy of the Institute.
