Peer Mentoring


What is Peer Mentoring?

The "Peer Mentoring Program" supports the new students to adapt to university life by the students in upper classes. The program, which has examples from many universities around the world, was implemented in our university in the 2016-2017 academic year with the "Mentor Training Program". The mentor candidates selected through interviews participated in a 14-week, 42-hour training program in total. The mentors who were successful in the exam received their certificates at the end of the training.
The first Peer Mentors of our university share their experiences with their Mentees in the 2017-2018 Academic Year and guide them.
