LUC The Hague: Student Mentor Liberal Arts & Sciences
Covid-19 has changed the academic world permanently. That is why we committed to offering extra support for our new students last year in the form of a mentor programme. Due to its success and appreciation by students, we are continuing this support. Therefore, we are looking for enthusiastic and committed student mentors to familiarize first year bachelor’s students with university life, as well as studying and living in The Hague, for the study programme Liberal Arts and Sciences.
As a student mentor you will supervise two groups of up to 20 first-year students from Leiden University College. You will act as a role model and a point of contact for the members of your groups. You will organize an online and offline programme focused on introducing students to Leiden University, building their study skills, and improving the wellbeing of the students. To this end, you will work together with a first-year academic advisor (a member of the LUC teaching staff) who will join various meetings in the programme. In addition, as a student mentor you will give tips and guidance on how to manage studying, exams, systems (such as Brightspace), educational culture, choices further down the course, and student life. There is also room available for you to initiate and plan your own workshops based on what students might need. Part of your role will also include helping individual students who may have trouble settling in or may be experiencing other issues and referring them to LUC’s student support system if needed.
