What is the ISN Mentor Program?
The ISN mentor program is for all foreign students coming to study in Leiden. It can make your time in The Netherlands more pleasant and fun!
Through the mentor program, foreign students can meet "Locals" (Dutch students or long term international students) and learn more about the local culture, the great Dutch student life and the do's and don’ts of Leiden! ;-) It works very simply... Your mentor(s) are students of Leiden University (mostly Dutch natives from the various academic faculties) and they will be your guide / contact person to guide you through the popular sights and lesser known attractions in our Leiden "universe."
The mentor(s) helps international students settle in during the first couple of weeks and stay better informed through the semester.
If your mentor has the time he/she will try to meet you when you arrive and give you a hand.
Your mentor is also a local you can always rely on to help guide you and explain the workings of your host country.
You should remember though, that the mentor program is a social program, so not ONLY about giving you help during your first weeks but the purpose is also to do nice things as a group.
So if you are an international student...
