UEF Doctoral Student Association (UEF-DSA) is a doctoral researchers’ own organisation operating on both campuses. More information about their activities on the webpage of UEF-DSA.
In peer mentoring, people working on the same issue (in this case doctoral researchers) share their experiences and knowledge in a small group. There is no experienced mentor and a novice actor in peer mentoring but everyone is a peer to each other. A trained peer mentor works in a dual role: as a mentor and a group member.
Peer mentoring activities began in the spring of 2022 with a pilot trial and the aim is to make it an established activity. Peer mentors will be trained in the fall and peer mentoring groups will start in the spring. The aim is to organize groups both in campus cities and online.
Participation in peer mentor training and acting as a peer mentor will earn you 2 ECTS (and good experience in supervising).
