What is the Mentor Program about?
The Mentor program is for Master students at DTU who wish to be a part of a community where sharing experiences helps you live your best life as a DTU student.
The program pairs an “older” Master student, the mentor, with a small group of new Master students, the mentees, to help the new students settle into their studies. The mentor group works as a place where you can give and receive guidance on how to handle life as a student.
A mentor acts as a knowledgeable friend, who helps the mentees navigate their life at DTU – both academically and personally.
A mentee can use the mentor for figuring out the course schedule, finding social activities, discussing emotional or cultural dilemmas, talking about their experiences as a new student at DTU and much more.
