Wanted: mentors for International Studies students

As you may know the new BA International Studies is starting this September at the Campus The Hague. Would you like to be a mentor to first-year International Studies students from all over the world?

The programme International Studies is looking for students from other Humanities’ Bachelor or Master programmes, who would like to be a mentor for our students during the first semester. We are expecting 300-350 students and about half of them are international students who are going to live in Leiden or The Hague for three years. So it’s important to us to welcome them and make them feel at home.

As a mentor you will participate in the International Studies introduction week from 3-7 September with your mentor group of 16 students. Besides this, we will ask you you to organise two or three informal meetings with your mentor group during the first semester, where you will explain some things about studying at Leiden University, for example using uSis.

Contact and participation

If you would like to be a mentor for our new programme, please send an e-mail to the co-ordinator of studies Sieglinde Bollen before August 15th.

Of course you will receive a compensation for your pariticipation. You will be invited to a short information meeting for all new mentors in the last week of August.
