The idea behind the mentor program is that each international student, who is interested, is assigned a German mentor. The mentors are volunteers who are students at the University of Tübingen themselves. They are personal counselors who may help you with questions you may have in the beginning and with adjusting to your new environment. The mentor will try to show you what German culture and student life in Tübingen are like: you can go to parties together, on trips, to the movies or the theatre, cook together, do sports, etc.

HOWEVER: Neither international students nor mentors enter an obligatory relationship. This is NOT a live-in program! The point is rather to spend some time together, get to know different cultures, and to broaden one’s horizon, so that both profit from it.
