At our faculty we have a mentor system for first year students and for students who are participating in bridging programmes. The mentor system offers our students guidance through their first year.
At the start of the bachelor all first year students are placed into mentor groups. A mentor is a senior student who will help first year students getting around. In mentor meetings during the year students receive information about studying, student life and the education at our faculty, and share experiences, tips and tricks. The mentor group is also the first year project group.
The mentor system for students in bridging programmes exists since 2002. At the start of the year the students meet with their two mentors. The mentors have been in a bridging programme themselves and support the students during their bridging programme by organizing meetings, providing tips & tricks and sharing experiences.
