Mentoring Programme Campus Life

What is the CEU Student Mentoring Programme?

The programme offers new students (both Spanish and international) the opportunity to be in contact and exchange experiences with a CEU student on their arrival. It provides a friendly face, a helping hand, and the first Universidad CEU Cardenal Herrera friendship that can make a world of difference for new arrivals.

The goals of this programme are:

  • To help new students settle in.
  • To build ties between students of the same degree.
  • To enhance student integration.
  • To ensure that new students do not feel alone as they take their first steps at the CEU.
  • To promote new student participation in campus activities.
  • To create a zero tolerance atmosphere against bullying

A CEU Student Mentor may have a single or several new students, it depends on the CEU Student buddy applications we receive and the number of new students per year. This is a voluntary service for new students. They can decide whether would like to join the programme or not.

Here are a few examples of what a Student Mentor would do:

  • Accompany new students on a tour of the university, explain where things are and how they work: where to eat, where to find the different student and university services, or how computer classrooms or the library works.
  • Explain how to get around Valencia, how the Metro and buses work, about monthly travel cards, taxi information, etc.
  • Help them get their bearings for everyday life: the supermarket, banks, the Post Office
  • More generally, make it easier for new students to adapt to their new campus life at the University.

The Campus Life office will also provide an E-Mentor Service, via email from mentor@uchceu.es between September and December. The rest of the year, students can address their questions to campuslife@uchceu.es.
