Mentoring

When you think back to when you were studying, would you like to have had the opportunity to get in touch with experienced professionals who could have offered you insights into possible future career paths? If you think students deserve this opportunity, then why not sign up to our mentoring programme? By connecting students and young graduates from Saarland University with experienced mentors, we want to foster international collaboration and encourage young people to broaden their horizons, to look beyond the typical boundaries that define their subject and to gain new ideas and experience both here and abroad. 
If you’d like to get involved, please complete the application form and send it to alumni[at]uni-saarland.de.
 

You can also register for the university’s in-house Miyagi mentoring initiative, which organizes regular meetings at which mentees can meet experienced business professionals and managers from Saarland’s business community.
