Being a mentor during the Winter Kick-In 2021 – extra information

The Winter Kick-In 2021 will be different than the traditional Winter Kick-In, but also this year we welcome many new students to the University of Twente. In order to give these students the best guidance during these weird times, mentors are more important than ever!

As a mentor you will guide a group of master students together with a fellow mentor, just like normal. This will mainly take place online, but meeting at a distance of 1,5 meters is also possible if allowed by the guidelines of the government. It is the task of the mentor to keep the group together (this is extra important when students are not in Enschede during the Kick-in), to provide information about studying at the UT and to ‘take’ the students to the fun (digital) activities the Kick-In has to offer! You give the new students a clear impression of Enschede as a student city and you are available to give information about studying at the UT during this time of online education. 

Being a mentor, you can participate in the Kick-In activities for free and you will have to opportunity to share your experiences with a new group of students, whom may become best friends after the Kick-In.

It is very important for prospective students to have a contact person, someone who guides them through the start of their student life. Do you want to help the new master students to make a good start at the University of Twente? Register as a mentor now!

A mentor briefing will take place just before the Winter Kick-In, where all the latest information will be shared with the mentors. The Winter Kick-In programme can be found here. You can always contact us with any questions or comments.
