If you want to mentor, you'll typically wait between 1-5 weeks for a mentoring match. If your course is less common it might take a little longer. As soon as the right match comes along, we'll let you know.

Our data shows that weekly mentoring sessions significantly boost students' chances of reaching top universities. By using one hour of your week to support a student, you double their chances of getting into a top uni.
Yes, you have total control over when you mentor. You'll be able to pause your matches during busy periods and then start back up once you're ready.
It depends. Mentoring is totally optional for our Access All Areas members. That said, we highly encourage all our uni students to at least go for one match. That's how we spread social impact across the UK and revolutionise the status quo. If mentoring really isn't for you, there are loads of other ways you can contribute to the community. For example, by sharing what you know in community spaces or becoming an ambassador on your campus.
Nope. The only qualification you need is being a Zero Gravity member at uni. You already know so much from having navigated the application process yourself. You can share that with a school student who needs your support, and supercharge their whole future.
Absolutely. We can give you an official letter confirming your involvement in mentoring with Zero Gravity. Just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll send it over.
Powering students into Oxford
Tami joined Zero Gravity as a school student and was matched with a mentor. After she won an offer to Oxford, she decided to pass the cycle down to another student by becoming a mentor herself.
My mentor had such a big part to play. Now, I really enjoy helping other students feel like nothing is out of reach.
