At HonEURs we have the privilege to not only represent the most talented and ambitious students at university, but also some of the most successful alumni at EUR, namely former honours students. With our mentorship program we want to bring students with big dreams together with successful alumni in the field. The life-advice from the mentors will allow students to follow in their footsteps faster and more informed.
What makes our mentorship program different from all the other programs out there?
The HonEURs mentorship program will not just match students with any alumni in the field. Through a personalized approach we want to understand what each students specific ambitions and dreams are and find an alumni who matches these specific interests and aspirations. As a small and close-knit association we will be in close contact with both the selected alumni and students.
What is the set-up?
To get a clear idea of the students interests and to allow for a successful matching process, we ask students to sign up for the HonEURs mentorship program using the form below. On basis of the information provided in this form and follow up communication, the student will be matched to a mentor. To allow for the most successful matches we are in close contact to the selected alumni and will continue to search the HonEURs network for alumni that fit the students ambitions the best. The mentor and mentee will then be introduced as specified by the mentor and will be provided with a guiding set-up for the first call/meeting if requested. We assume everyone knows how to best network for themselves, and acknowledges the importance of it. Therefore, we want to provide a channel to do so. This means that we want each mentor and their mentees to dictate their relationship as they see fit.
Still thinking that maybe your dream field is not captured by our programme yet?
You might be right, but we’re going the extra-mile. Due to the large pool of connections we have, we promise we will find you a suitable mentor, you just have to have a bit of patience. So, whether it’s Medicine, Arts, Dance or any other field that for now we did not bring up, do share your dreams with us and we will find you the perfect cicerone. You apply on a rolling basis, our mentors come on a rolling basis but what you get out of the programme should be continuous happiness!
