The aim of the KTH Alumni Mentor Program is to give you as a student inspiration for your future career and work life.

By sharing knowledge and experience, large and small, you and your mentor will gain new understanding and perspectives. The mentoring programme aims to provide both mentor and mentee personal and professional support and development.

What does it mean to be a mentee?

Mentoring is about asking questions, listening, reflecting and discovering new perspectives. As a mentee in the program, you are expected to meet with your mentor four times during the school year. You and your mentor decide how and when to meet. In addition, you are asked to participate in a meeting with all mentees at the start of the program, as well as a digital start- and final meeting with all participants. We can not guarantee that your mentor will have the same educational background as you, but we strive to make a good match.

  • The application to apply for a mentor will open in August.
  • The matching of mentor and mentee takes place in October.
  • The introductory meeting for the mentoring program is in October.
  • The mentoring program starts in November.
  • Mentors and mentees meet individually until the summer.
  • KTH Alumni organise a joint meeting for everyone in December.
  • KTH Alumni organise a joint closing meeting in May.
