Read more details about the mentor services:
Pre-Application is the introductory part of all Mentor services. The Mentor introduces not just himself, but the university as well shares his thoughts and experience about the campus, gives an overall general insight into the way of life at the university. As a student, it is also a great starting point after which you can decide whether you want to continue with the other Mentor services or not.
2. Motivation letter or Portfolio elements, if needed:
For many universities an applicant has to submit a Personal statement/Portfolio or a Motivational letter, that can be a very challenging part of the application. Whether it’s about a personal statement, a nice-looking CV, a creative yet professional cover letter or a unique portfolio, Mentors can help with all creative bits of the application documents. Remember that the Mentor is there to support the student, not to work instead of them.
3. Application process and documentation:
The Mentors task here would be to support the student in the whole Application process to their university: whether it's about how to properly fill out a required document and where to send it, or reminding them about important deadlines. How to fill out what and where to send it to who by when – the massive amount of paperwork some universities require at the application process can be overwhelming. Well, not anymore!
4. Living conditions, Accommodation options, Travel, Insurance, etc..:
For a student, the journey doesn't stop at the successful admission. A new phase of their life is just about to begin and as a Mentor, you can provide them with useful pieces of information for example how to find a roof over their heads or how to finance their living. Help them to feel at the doorstep of their new life a little more comfortable and confident.
