Get involved with mentoring of international students!

Dear alumnus/alumna! The next mentoring programme will start in January 2021 and we are looking for enthusiastic mentors to join. The mentoring programme is aimed for Turku UAS students with an international or migrant background. The mentor doesn’t need to have previous experience, all mentors are coached for the role.

The aim of mentoring is to support and improve the international students' possibilities to find employment in Finland.  Mentoring provides rewarding moments and insights also for the mentors. Mentoring develops the mentor's language and guidance skills and gives new perspectives on the mentor's own work, profession and Finnish labour market.   

In year 2021, the language and guidance services for immigrant students will be launched and one of the activities is mentoring towards working life. As a mentor, you can also develop the activities of Turku UAS.
