Become a mentee


Registions for mentees will start in August 2021.


What makes a good mentee?

At its core, the International Mentoring Program is designed to help you, as a mentee, with all your questions concerning your studies and everyday life in Freiburg. Therefore our experienced students (mentors) accompany and support you on a personal, professional and social basis. However, the program aims to ensure, that both sides benefit from participation!

As a mentee you should:

  • play an active role and be open to share your cultural experiences with others, especially with your mentor.
  • be willing to make new friends and integrate quickly into life in Freiburg.
  • be reliable and on time when meeting with your mentor and prepare your own topics in advance
  • have confidence in yourself, in your dreams and ambitions!
