A Broadening of Knowledge

As a student at the Department of Cultural Sciences you are offered the opportunity to participate in a mentor group. The purpose of the mentorship programme is twofold, it intends both to create a good environment for studying in the department and to develop knowledge of the subject for all involved. The mentorship programme is intended to enhance the quality of your education.

How Does The Programme Work?

In the mentorship programme experienced students act as mentors to less experienced students, so-called mentees. The programme is conducted at all levels of study, all students at the department are therefore welcome to participate.

The programme takes place in small groups, in general consisting of two to three mentors and five to ten mentees. The groups usually meet once a week.

During a meeting and as a mentee, you get the opportunity to ask study related questions, immerse yourself in the literature and further discuss what have been brought up on lectures and seminars. The mentors will contribute with their knowledge of the subject and answer questions according to their ability. You also get a good opportunity to get to know your classmates.

As a mentor you get the opportunity to repeat, enhance and broaden your knowledge of the subject. It is hoped that all participants will contribute with their own experiences and knowledge to create a dynamic and creative learning environment. Being a mentor is both stimulating and rewarding.

To Whom is Mentorship Available?

All students at the department may participate as mentees in the mentorship programme, whether you are studying full time or part time.
