Mentoring on Göttingen Campus




The Mentoring Programme is conducted in close collaboration with selected institutions of the University. The co-operation lies primarily in the development of conceptual elements, particularly with regard to common networking events. The co-operation also allows far-reaching support in public relations work and in the acquirement of mentors and mentees as well as in the organization and allocation of seminars and workshops.
