The Intercultural Mentoring of the University of Osnabrück (Imos) aims at improving the academic study situation of the International students.
The program addresses international students who seek to get their Bachelor's/undergraduate or Master's/graduate degree. Engaged German students and academics (Mentors) support them (Mentees) individually in the process of integration into the German culture and university system.
The student Mentors gain counseling and intercultural competencies during one semester of training, which they can apply as they accompany their Mentees with social or study-related challenges.
For subject-specific support Mentees can additionally get an academic Mentor from the respective field of studies.
International students can register for the Mentoring program as Mentees, and German students and academics can register as student/academic Mentors. This website offers information about the project.
