Update! December 2016


Become a Mentor! Info Session on December 12, 2016

As a mentor in our Mentoring@WU program, you will support undergraduate students at the beginning of their studies. At the same time, you will benefit from the program as well.

If you become a mentor, you will be in charge of a group of undergraduate students for at least one semester – you will meet up with your mentees regularly, help them put together a schedule for the semester, and get settled at WU. In return, you will improve your consulting and leadership skills; at the end of the semester, you will get a certificate of participation that entitles you to earn credits towards a free elective for your mentoring experience.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor, don’t miss our info session:

  • When? Monday, December 12, 2016, 5 p.m.

  • Where? Clubraum, LC building, level 2

  • Please register for the info session via email:

During the info session, you will learn more about the Mentoring@WU program and meet current mentors.

Please note that fluent German skills are required in order to become a mentor.
