First Year Mentor

Contact point for first year students regarding practical matters.  

Every first-year student will receive guidance from a student mentor appointed by the department during the first year of his/her Bachelor’s program.  

The student mentor is a second year or third year (or further) student. He/she will help you with all your practical issues that may arise when you start studying at the university (e.g. registration of courses, online sources, redirection: where to find what or who and how) but he/she can also explain you about effective study skills (i.e., how to plan, how to study big books, how to prepare for exams).  In the first few weeks, student mentors will meet weekly with their group of first year students, and as time goes on the frequency will depend on the important topics to be discussed with first year students. If you haven’t been assigned a student mentor, please contact the academic advisor of your department.
