Introduction To Mentoring


Mentoring can be described as a meeting place between a mentor and a mentee and it aims at the integral formation of the student. It is a commitment of the university to foster a personal and professional relationship between the mentor and mentee which in many cases develops over time.

Mentoring helps the mentee make a connection with someone (mentor) who can help the student achieve full potential. Meeting a mentor regularly helps the student to:

  • Have a smooth transition into university life during the first weeks on campus.
  • Manage their time and develop a personal work plan.
  • Get involved in SU life through sports and clubs.
  • Understand academic procedures, management and regulations.
  • Improve their grades and guide them in choosing academic specializations.

A student is allocated a mentor within three weeks of orientation into campus and the name of the mentor is displayed on the students AMS account.

The mentors’ web page offers the mentees convenience as they can access the mentors’ contact information easily.
