Aims
After completing the mentoring programme, students are able to:
  • articulate their strong and weak points in the areas of study attitude and skills;
  • adapt their study behaviour according to their strengths and weaknesses;
  • present a well-argued vision on arts and culture as well as Cultural Studies as a discipline.
Content
The main objective of the mentoring programme is to help students make the transition from secondary or higher vocational education to university. In the mentoring sessions, students will discuss topics ranging from study attitude and academic culture to student life. In addition, they will reflect on the nature of Cultural Studies as a discipline, its main objects of study (arts and culture) and the skills they need to develop for their future careers. The meetings with the mentoring groups will also be devoted to discussions about time management, study load and work-related stress, side jobs and career opportunities. Each mentoring group has its own student mentor. The mentoring programme is formally connected to the History of the Arts 4 course: to be able to complete this course, students should have succesfully completed the mentoring programme.
Please take into account that there will be extra expenses of approximately €100 for cultural excursions.
