The Mentor Programme: QA [kua]

The Faculty of Humanities has a mentor programme, which goes by the name of the QA Programme. By joining the programme you will establish an instant network that will pick you up in the airport and help you get settled in Copenhagen. 

We strongly encourage all international students to sign up for the mentor programme. As a mentee you will be part of a group with six to eight mentors and mentees.

The mentors, who are themselves domestic or international students at UCPH, will assist with the practical aspects of adjusting to a new educational system, be available for questions and introduce you to the social life at the Faculty and beyond. The mentors are also the backbone of the Faculty’s international study environment and they will host events throughout the semester that you can attend as a student at UCPH.

Normally your mentor group will contact you by email prior to your arrival in Denmark. Therefore it is important to make sure that the email address used in your registration is valid and that you check it regularly prior to leaving your home country.
