FADEUP started on the academic year of 2018/2019, the Peer Mentoring Program of the University of Porto (Mentoria UP), aimed at new students of the 1st year of the degree, of the second and third cycles.
Mentoring assures, on the part of the students enrolled at the UP in previous years (the Mentors), support for students who enter a cycle of studies for the first time (the Mentees). That support is materialized in the process of social and academic integration, in reinforcing the autonomy of new students, in their well-being and in academic success. Mentoring also aims to develop soft skills and integral training for students, both mentors and mentees.
The program, coexisting with other measures and/or initiatives in force at the University, intends to expand and deepen innovative and tendency to intercultural methods of integration and experience at UP.
Students' participation and involvement, whether Mentors or Mentees, is voluntary.
