To help you get a good start, the University of Copenhagen has a well-organised mentor network. A mentor is not an academic tutor, but a Danish student who, on a voluntary basis, helps you settle in during the first days of your stay in Denmark. Your mentor will typically study the same subject as you or attend the same Faculty. Some faculties have groups where mentors help international students. In general, the mentors will help you with practical matters such as registration with the Danish authorities, advise you on where to shop and introduce you to the University premises. The extent of your relationship beyond this depends on how well you get along.
You must indicate in your application for admission that you would like to be assigned a mentor. It is the local mentor coordinator at the departments who is in charge of the mentor coordination. If you have questions regarding your future mentor, you should contact your mentor coordinator.
Mentor Networks and Groups
During the semester, the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) and local mentor groups at the University organise social events for international students. The events give you an opportunity to socialise with both Danish and other international students.
