The student mentoring program at the TU Dresden
With our student mentoring program in cooperation with the Technische Universität Dresden, we offer students interested in studying the opportunity to get first-hand answers to questions about studying. In their function as personal mentors, current TU Dresden students support incoming students in their general study orientation, provide advice on deciding on a course of study, and provide invaluable personal insights into university life.

How does participation in the student mentoring program work?
The student mentoring program is primarily aimed at students in grades 9 to 13 who want to learn more about their desired course of study or experience student life at TU Dresden up close. The six-month courses are free of charge and begin each semester in spring (May) and fall (November). You can register at any time using the corresponding registration form on the TU Dresden website. Important: If you are under the age of 18, the signature of a parent is required. Within seven days of receiving the registration, we will invite the course participants to the next (digital) kick-off event at the TU Dresden. At the event, students will not only receive a detailed introduction to the program and initial information about their desired course of study, but will also get to know each other and many of the student mentors.
How does student mentoring work?
To ensure that the student mentoring program is a worthwhile experience for all involved, we not only work with committed and trained mentoring partners, but also attach great importance to individualized options. Together with their mentor, the participants can determine the goals, the time frame, and the content of their mentoring program themselves. In addition to a personal discovery tour of the TU Dresden campus, this can include a tour of the faculty relevant to the study program, visits to lectures and seminars, participation in excursions, or a visit to the SLUB. Perhaps more importantly, it also gives participants the ability to ask questions relevant to the study program, such as access, procedures, and the organization of the desired study program. If desired, a shortening or extension of the mentoring is also possible.
Where can I get more information about student mentoring?
The student mentoring is a cooperation program of the Technische Universität Dresden, the German Research Foundation (DFG), and TUDIAS GmbH. You can find more information as well as the contact details here.
