Mentoring programme

Your master's programme offers a lot of freedom of choice. Your mentor can help you make the right choices as you plan your studies.

Who is my mentor?

You are free to choose your mentor yourself. The best way to find the right mentor is to take a look at the websites of our research groups. This will give you an idea of our professors’ research areas and interests and make it easier for you to choose a mentor who can relate to your study interests.

When should the meeting with my mentor take place?

The first meeting with your mentor should take place at the beginning of your first semester. Your mentor will support you in planning your studies and choosing the advanced courses offered by our department as well as those courses offered by other departments that fit your area of specialisation.

Is the mentor meeting obligatory?

Yes. However, the meeting has an advisory character only and you do not have to follow any of the recommendations your mentor makes. But please note: you do have to see your mentor at least once! A written confirmation of this meeting, the mentor meeting report, will be submitted to the departmental examination office. You need to meet with your mentor to be able to register for your exams in the first semester and for your master’s thesis.
