Find a mentor

No one is better equipped to support you in your studies and life at university than our student mentors. They can answer your questions and help you with a given task, based on your interests, your hometown or country, your program, or even your preferred language. They’re just waiting for you to contact them: you get to decide what role they’ll play at your side!
