The ESN Mentor Programme is structured around the mentor group system: 2 Mentors helping a group of around 10 to 15 international students to feel at home in our beautiful city. The mentors will help the international students to find their way around Utrecht at the beginning of their stay. As a mentor you will guide and help the international students adjust to the slightly crazy Dutch culture and the way of life for a student in the Netherlands. You can meet up regularly, go out for drinks, have dinner together, go to the ESN activities together; basically have a lot of fun!

Besides this, a mentor will also give the internationals advice about practical stuff to help them settle in Utrecht as fast as possible and above all it is a chance to meet people from all over the world!
