The Mentoring Programme is about connecting mentor student-volunteers with incoming international students, in order to provide you – the international students – a helping hand at the beginning of your stay, and give you the opportunity to practice a foreign language, and meet students from abroad.
The Mentoring Programme offers you the possibility to request a local mentor before you arrive in Warsaw.

How can a Mentor help me?
Your mentor should be there for you, to answer any questions you might have regarding your studies or your stay in Warsaw. He/she should pick you up at the airport/train station, or at least, explain how the public transportation works. Your mentor should give you some tips on where to go and what to see in your first days. After that, it is all up to you, but the Mentoring Programme is known for making great friendships happen!
How can I get a Mentor?
To get a Mentor, you need to register for our Mentoring Programme at vistula.broaddy.com/register/
We highly recommend writing something about yourself in the registration form, as it increases your chances of getting a local mentor. You can view your profile and make changes, anytime you want. When a local mentor volunteers to help you, you will receive an e-mail with his/her contact information. You should contact one another as soon as possible. Sometimes, the selection process takes a while. The sooner you sign up, the higher the chances are that you will get a mentor before your arrival.
We want to kindly inform you that this is a volunteer-based activity of local mentor students, and there might not be a volunteer for everyone, but we will do our best for you. Moreover, be advised, that this registration is not an official university information system. The official registration will take place upon your arrival.
