OIP is looking for new mentors for INCOMING Exchange Students!

Author: OIP

Each semester, Koç University welcomes exchange students from reputable universities around the globe and we are seeking individuals with strong leadership, communication and organizational skills to act as guides and resource personnel for students new to Istanbul. Mentors will also work with OIP during the exchange student orientation (29 January - 2 February), as well as throughout the semester on various OIP projects and events.

If you are looking for a remarkable experience to meet peers from around the world, to improve your interpersonal skills, and to give your resume an extra kick, then please consult the attached guidelines and apply via the link therein. All applications will be considered, but preference will be given to those who can successfully demonstrate cultural sensitivity and leadership qualities.

Mentors will be responsible from the incoming exchange students’ needs in terms of: activities, trips, paper submission, reminders, Q&A’s about Koç University and its relevant departments as well as the integration with the prospective outgoing students from Koç University.

The deadline for applications will be December 13. After a pre-selection, we will contact you for an interview shortly. There will be a skype session for students who are on Exchange/Erasmus currently.
