Application for working as a mentor
As a student, you can take a job as a mentor to another student at the University. Being a mentor means that you help the student to structure and plan their studies and you share your knowledge and experience of study technique and motivation.
The assignment is paid and as a mentor you will get a lot in return. Students who work as mentors often manage their own studies better, it is developing and a merit in their future working life.
As a mentor you’ll meet the student once a week, for approx. 1-1,5 hours, usually for about 10 occasions. You decide whether you want to mentor one or more students. However, all meetings take place individually. The student you meet may for example need support in sorting and prioritising assignments and tasks.
Your contribution is important
The student you will meet has applied for mentoring support and believes that this type of support is relevant and meaningful. That's why your contribution as a mentor is so important.
