Become a mentor

Become a mentor


As a mentor you will act as sparring partner to a student or graduate who may benefit from your experience in matters such as career opportunities, searching and applying for jobs, networking, the transition from study to employment and much more.

In acting as a mentor you must be prepared to support the learning process of your mentee and be prepared to take the time to meet with your mentee. You also need to be prepared to listen, ask questions, give advice and share your own experience when appropriate.

How to become a mentor

To enroll in the mentorship programme as a mentor, you are required to be an Aalborg University graduate and have a couple of years of professional experience as a minimum. Additionally, you need to be a member of the university’s alumni-network, AAU Alumni. AAU Alumni is completely free, and you can sign up here.

There won't be a mentoring programme in 2018. The next mentoring programme is expected to start in the fall of 2019.

It has been inspirational

“Since being a mentor I have spent quite some time reflecting on my role as a mentor; my own role as a mentor, my strengths/challenges, how I asked questions as a mentor. Taking part in this programme has been inspirational.”
