Mentoring and Coaching

Mentoring - Students for Students

Expected to be available from winter semester 2018/2019

Do you have questions about studying and would you like support when beginning your degree course? In the mentoring programme "Students for Students", students from the 3rd semester onwards (mentors) advise students in their 1st and 2nd semesters (mentees). This involves 2-3 meetings of 2 hours with all mentors and mentees; flexible contact is also possible according to need.

The joint meetings take place on Mondays from 17:30 to 19:00. The location is made known in advance via e-mail or in Moodle.
