- Mentor's feedback
Mentoring means providing support, guidance, encouragement, and tips to mentees, who are Master’s students (or doctoral students). The aim of mentoring is to help students discover their potential as employers and strive for their future career. Mentoring is based on mutual trust, openness and commitment.
Mentoring meetings can be arranged either face-to-face or remotely or online. The possibility of face-to-face meetings should be considered in the light of current guidelines and recommendations, as well as the place of residence and mutual agreement of the both parties.
We try to find the best possible mentoring pairs. Often the pairs share educational background but sometimes other factors such as entrepreneurial experience may be more important. Unfortunately, we might not find a mentee for everyone since the study fields and wishes of the students vary.
We let our alumni know about upcoming Mentoring Programmes in the alumni newsletter which you receive by joining the UniOulu Alumni Community>. If you are interested to become a mentor for a doctoral student, please contact directly the University of Oulu Graduate School: uniogs(at)oulu.fi
