Become a Mentor for Incoming International Students
The Rīga Stradiņš University (RSU) International Department invites students to become mentors for new international students starting at RSU in August 2021.
The aim of the mentor programme is to enhance international students' experience at RSU by assisting them throughout their first study semester. Mentoring offers a great opportunity for students to get to know other cultures and establish contacts and friendships with people from different countries. A mentor is an advisor who guides newly-enrolled international students at the university by explaining the study process and academic requirements, as well as giving practical advice on everyday matters and life in Riga. A mentor encourages the new students and helps them settle into their new home.
New students can approach their mentors with questions about how to act in certain situations, or how public institutions in Latvia work. Mentors play a significant role in the life of newly-admitted students and are often the first person students turn to.
To better prepare for mentoring, we will conduct trainings for new mentors. Trainings are scheduled to take place on 15 and 30 June and students who don't have prior experience with mentoring are asked to attend one of these training sessions.
We are kindly inviting students to join the mentor family, share their experience from studying at RSU and make friends with people who will soon become a part of the RSU community.
