Become an international mentor

Help international students get the best start at the University of Copenhagen.

Would you like to help international students settle in, participate in social events, have fun, learn a lot and practice intercultural and language skills?

Every semester, the faculties of UCPH welcome hundreds of international students. Not only do these students face the challenges of entering a new university, they also face the challenges of dealing with a new culture and society.

The mentor programmes of UCPH are volunteer-based student support programmes designed to provide assistance to incoming international students in order to make them feel welcome and safe when they first arrive in Copenhagen. It is also a great opportunity to get an international network and new skills.

As a mentor, you will join the mentor progamme at your faculty, as well as being invited for education days and social events with students from all of UCPH.

YES, I want to be a mentor!

Social events for mentors and mentees

As part of your faculty mentor programme, you are part of planning events for your new mentees.

Every semester, we also arrange a big Welcome to CPH party at Studenterhuset, as well as several social events for mentors and mentees.
