It is a voluntary participation program whose objective is guidance and support among university students. During the first semester of the current course, second-year students or higher (mentors) guide newly recruited students (mentors) with the help of a tutor. With this, the mentor obtains a certificate that recognizes two credits for participation in university activities. The mentee receives the support of a student from the same Center and preferably from the same degree.

Specifically, this Program aims to develop a guidance and support service for new students through a peer mentoring system, through which a student in a higher course (student mentor) advises students from new entry (mentored students). In turn, the student mentors are coordinated by tutor teachers. This work will allow mentored students (recent admission):

  • A better adaptation to university life.
  • Know teaching aspects such as the study plan, schedules, group changes, exam calls, and student delegation, and obtain academic resources such as using the university library, exchange programs, etc.
  • Deal with administrative aspects such as requesting academic certifications, using the electronic office, etc.
  • Greater integration into the social life of the university.

For their part, student mentors will be able to develop the following competencies:

  • Social skills.
  • Leadership.
  • Commitment.
  • Solidarity.
  • Teamwork.

Students who participate as mentors will receive an academic recognition of 2 ECTS credits for their work with a supporting document issued by the ULPGC.

The application to be a mentor student and a mentee student will be communicated to students promptly.
