All mentorship assignments are handled by Disability Support Services. A mentorship usually takes around two hours per week and is agreed on a semester-by-semester basis. If you have any questions about the assignment, please feel free to contact the mentor coordinator, liselott [dot] eriksson [at] stu [dot] lu [dot] se.
For study support mentors or assistants be registered to receive fees, an agreement must be completed by the time the semester’s assignment begins. The agreement is sent via email, in conjunction with the start-up meeting. It is very important that the agreement is submitted by the time you start the assignment, since it provides the start date of the assignment period.
Confirmation of ongoing mentorship assignment four times per semester
During the semester, you will receive an email requiring you to confirm that the mentorship/assistant assignment is ongoing, in accordance with the earlier agreement. The emails are sent out four times per semester and must be responded to within five working days.
These confirmations make up the basis for the fee payment and will be used for accounting purposes. It is very important that the confirmations are submitted to ensure that fees are paid out.
Payment of fees
The payment of fees occurs after the semester is complete, given that the agreement and the confirmations have been submitted. Together, these also form the basis for deciding the size of the fee.
Both study support mentors and students are obliged to inform Disability Support Services should the assignment cease for any reason.
In order for the fee to be paid directly into your bank account, you need to register your account with Nordea. Note that you will need to contact the mentor coordinator at Disability Support Services to get Lund University’s employer number.
The fee for the semester is SEK 4,800 in those cases where the mentoring assignment has continued throughout the semester. In other cases, the fee is calculated according to the percentage of the semester the assignment has covered. The scope is divided into 25%, 50%, 75% or 100% of the semester, see below.
Fees for assistants and study support mentors at Lund University, per semester

Two mentors’ meetings are offered each semester, in which we discuss questions related to the mentorship assignment. The mentors’ meetings for the autumn 2022 semester will be offered as follows:
- 5 October 16:00–18:00
- 9 November 16:00–18:00
Invitations to the mentors’ meetings will be sent by email, one or two weeks before the meeting.
You are also welcome to contact Disability Support Services if you have any questions about the assignment.
You register as a note-taker via an online form, accessible on the website before or in conjunction with the start of your assignment. It will not be possible to register retrospectively.
Confirmation of completed note-taking assignment
At the end of each completed semester, you will be required to confirm that you have carried out your assignment. This means completing a confirmation that is sent out via email by the administrator for note-taking support.
Payment of fees
To receive payment for note-taking support, you must first have submitted the online form ’Register for a note-taker assignment’. The form must be completed before you begin your assignment.
After the end of the semester, payment is made within three months, given that the confirmation has been submitted.
For the fee to be paid directly into your bank account, you need to register your account with Nordea. Please note that you will need to contact the administrator to get Lund University’s employer number.
The fees are calculated according to the number of credits the assignment covers.
- 30 credits: SEK 3,200
- 15 credits: SEK 1,600
- 7.5 credits: SEK 800
