Mentor Program

Our Mentor Program at METU is dedicated to help international newcomers integrate into our university and help them settle in Hungary. The essence of this program is to be an open and supportive community: mentors and mentees all together. If you need any support as a freshman at METU or if you want to explore our community while making new friends and having fun, do not hesitate to join us.

How the Program Works?

We created our mentor program together with our students for our students. The idea was to tailor the program exactly to our METU freshmen, and provide them with the opportunity to seamlessly find their way with us.

So in this program as a freshman you will meet your mentor who is a senior student and they will personally be in contact with you with any questions or help required.

  1. All you need to do is sign up for the program here.

  2. After you have filled out the application form, in a few days, one of our mentors will get in touch with you and you can start communicating. You can ask general questions regarding eg. your arrival to the country, your accommodation, any school related questions, etc.

  3. During your first semester you will have the chance to get help from your mentor, but not only that. We will organize events for you where you can meet your fellow freshmen, make friends and have fun together.

  4. After your first semester in the program, you can decide to become a mentor and help new mentees the same supportive way you were helped before.

As an artist, an art teacher and a former art student myself, I take great pleasure in helping our art students find their ways not only in the new university environment but also in Hungary. During my 5 year experience as a mentor, I got to help a great number of our art students, many of which are now some of my best friends. I absolutely love meeting other artists, helping people and finding new friends with whom I share common interests. Let's have a chat and find out how I can help :)

Our goal is to assist you in overcoming the challenges of adjusting to this new environment. I hope your time as a student is fruitful and satisfying.


As a person who studied in a foreign country I know what it’s like to be lost and overwhelmed by a strange new country. I’m in a fortunate position where I, being a local, can help and assist people who don't speak the language.   Me and the mentor program are here to help with all aspects of university life.


The inspiration to create this program came from other similar programs at other universities. My personal inspiration was to build something together with our students for our students. This is what makes this program effective and sustainable at the same time. I am very grateful for our mentors who are collaborating in the management and continuous improvement of the Mentor Program.


I am here to help and encourage you to reach your inspiration. I enjoy supporting you by sharing my experiences and giving you the information you need while you gain practical knowledge and insight for a better university life.
