We also offer mentoring for you: The aim of the programme is to give you and your fellow students an orientation at the beginning of your studies, to network with each other and thus to enable an optimal start to your studies. MentorING groups consist of 15-20 first-year students, each of whom is assigned a mentor (a doctoral student in the LRT programme) and an LRT student. Three group meetings take place within this framework. In addition, the respective mentors and tutors are also available to you outside of the meetings for questions and advice. Both opportunities are intended to give you the chance to ask questions in personal dialogue that concern you at the beginning of your studies. Your feedback also helps us to recognise the needs of the students and thus to set positive impulses for the teaching at the faculty.

You can register for MentorING in the first week (you will receive more information from our Dean of Studies during the introductory presentation). The registration link will be announced during the introductory week.
