Mentorship Programme

The student peer mentorship programme is organised and supported by Humanitas University under the supervision of the Office for Medical Education and the International Students Office.

What is peer mentorship?

The peer Mentorship programme matches junior students (mentees) with senior or more experienced students (mentors), who will act as advisors or guides, providing support to, and feedback on, the mentee.

What is the role of mentors?

Mentors support junior students, by answering questions about campus and university life  (both curricular and extracurricular activities), by sharing relevant experiences and giving their mentees the contacts they might need.

How is the student peer mentorship organised at Humanitas University?

Each year incoming students are put into contact with a group of mentors from the second year through the LMS. This peer mentoring programme follows the students over the six years of the degree course.

The programme is supported through an online platform (LMS) where students can ask questions, create mentoring groups or request individual appointments.
