The project ”Pupils Attending University“ has been complemented with mentoring since the winter term 2010/11. Pupils taking part in the project are assisted in their first steps at university by older and experienced students.


The objectives of the project are on the one hand to give support with the logistics and subject of study, and on the other hand the mentees should be given the opportunity to reflect their personal targets with their mentors.
