Senior Advisor Programme

The Programme

The Senior Advisor programme supports international and PhD students. Mentors are able to pass on career and professional experience to people interested in intercultural exchange within the city and region. The advisors participating in the scheme come from different professional backgrounds so as to mirror the broad spectrum of experience that is available in the labour market today. The current stage of planning in this project is to have a main pool of senior advisors, develop corresponding procedures to match the students with appropriate advisors and have accompanying events where the advisors and students initiate contact; it is also necessary to guarantee the quality of the programme. 

General duties of a senior advisor:

  • Supporting and helping students to develop professionally and socially and resolving their problems
  • Giving students a glimpse of a professional person’s working environment
  • Advising students about their situation in their working life
  • Creating a sense of professional confidence and planning the first steps
  • Evaluating the Senior Advisor programme
