Lund University welcomes almost 3 500 international students every year. The International Mentor Programme aims to facilitate the students' adaptation to their new environment. As a mentor you help new international students to settle into Lund student life.
International mentors can be either current Swedish or current international students at Lund University. Mentors are organised into groups of 3-5 mentors and 20-30 new international students.
Together with the other mentors in the group you organise social activities with the new students, especially during the Orientation Programme, but also during the semester. If you have special wishes regarding your mentor group, please state them in the registration form. You are also welcome to volunteer as a mentor during Arrival Day and the Orientation weeks.
Arrival Day is the official start of the Orientation Weeks for new international students at Lund University. As a mentor you can volunteer at one (or two if you work the whole day) of eight different stations during Arrival Day. The different stations are:
You can choose to volunteer for one shift (8.00-14.00 or 13.30-19.00) or help us during the whole day (8.00-19.00). All international mentors working during Arrival Day are served lunch, drinks and snacks.
During the Orientation Weeks there are several other activities where we need the help of mentors:
