Become a mentee

Become a mentee


As a mentee you will be given a sparring partner who is willing to share with you their knowledge and experience in matters relating to your future career. Such matters may include clarifying what your dream job is, developing a business idea, building a network, transitioning from study to employment and much more.

Being a mentee requires you to be committed to undergoing a process of learning and development and to take the time to meet with your mentor. You also need to keep an open mind and stay curious as to what your mentor has to offer, and more importantly, you must be prepared to be actively committed to achieving your goals.


You can apply for a mentor during the 5th to 10th semester of your study program as a student or as a graduate.

If you are already a graduate, you are required to be a member of AAU Alumni to enter the mentor programme. AAU Alumni is completely free, and you can sign up here.


The application form will be available online in September on this page.

We will process your application after the annual deadline, and you will receive a decision on the outcome of your application. In our review of the applications, we particularly weigh your motivation for engaging in the course of the mentorship.

Like being a new graduate with more than 10 years of work experience

“Having a mentor behind you feels like being a new graduate with more than 10 years of work experience. The self-confidence and calmness of a mentor will rub off on you.”
