Mentoring Program

Mentoring program for international and senior citizen students

The mentoring program enables the initial contact between international and German senior citizens. We support the mentoring program as it brings international and local students together. International students have the opportunity to meet senior citizens who also study at TU Dortmund University.

This way, we can help international students to ease their way into the German culture and everyday life. This is not only a great opportunity for students from abroad but also for the mentors to gain insight into different backgrounds and cultures and therefore a whole new perspective. 

The mentoring program is a project from the Faculty of Education, Psychology and Sociology which is a study program for seniors in cooperation with the International Office.
