Mentorship Programme

NOTE: This programme is only conducted in Swedish.
Luleå University runs a mentoring program where you as a student can get a mentor at work, someone to bounce thoughts and ideas about the future of, and a person who can act as a door opener in terms of thesis / theses, jobs and a large network. The purpose of the mentoring program is that students will gain professional and industry-relevant advice from the professional area for your interest to apply for after graduation and that fits your specific skills.

How it works - a short summary

As a student makes an application and you will be admitted, we make a match where we start from and your mentor's profile, skills and special requests. When this is done, you know who your mentor is and you can then make contact and schedule your first appointment.

You can also choose to arrange a mentor on your own and then participate in the program. What you should think about then is that the mentor should  be in the region so you can be on the joint meetings.

The program begins then with a joint kick-off meeting for all mentors and mentees in which information is provided on the program set up. During the program you work then together on your professional and personal development. After this meeting you and your mentor individually to your needs and wishes (we recommend about 6 times) and in addition to this organized common meetings where you get the opportunity to meet other mentors and mentees. In May, completed the mentoring program with a joint closing meeting for all participants.

Expectations of you as adept

It's up to you to realize your goals with mentor support - think and clarify what you want out of the mentorship. Ask for what you want, the mentor is there to using their professional experience, be a sounding board for your questions. You as a mentee to initiate meetings with your mentor and be the driving Party. Think long term and provide mentoring relationship time to develop. The time you spend is an investment in yourself and your future. To be able to look back on a successful year, you must be prepared to devote the necessary time and prioritize your appointments. Take the opportunity to meet with other mentees and mentors. With them you can exchange experiences and get new ideas - the purchase, you get more contacts and new networks.

How long? Mentoring program runs for one academic year. If you both want to continue the relationship on their own after the end of the year, this course well.
