Being a mentor is a difficult, but rewarding task. You can help someone find their path of life, choose from the possibilities and choices, make the right choice, and not only fight for but reach their dreams as well.

In your home country as a representative of the University of Miskolc, you can play the role of a mentor. You studied here, you became familiar with the study programmes and courses of the University, the  lecturers, professors, fellow students, laboratories and Miskolc itself. You gained ample experience about the everyday life of a student  from studying, preparing for and taking examinations, to shopping and enjoying life in Miskolc.

Why don't you help  young people in your surroundings with  your experience and your advice, all based on your years at the University of Miskolc as a former student. If you are interested in such a role, let us know [here]
