Once you start your new life in Hungary, you will surely have many questions either about your university programme or about everyday practicalities. It comes very handy, especially at the beginning of your stay, when someone with substantial experience can help you to find your way around in a new environment and culture.
The Stipendium Hungaricum Mentor Network organized by the HÖOK (National Union of Students in Hungary) will guide you during your university years offering a mentor programme and also different trainings and courses. The various events and the dedicated mentors can help you with almost every problem during your stay in Hungary. The mentors assist with the administrative and educational tasks of their mentees and help them to become familiar with Hungarian culture and routine. The mentors always attend the same university as their mentees, and you can always turn to them when you need personal support or guidance with your studies or everyday life.
The Mentor Network organizes several cultural and touristic programmes for its members to make the students' stay in Hungary pleasant and to show them the country’s values. All of these events are free for the members. Joining the Network is also a good way to find new friends and to extend your social network, so it is definitely worth participating in this international community.
For more information and registration as a mentee, visit the Network’s website or find out more on their Facebook page.
