About the programme

The Career Mentoring Programme allows Swedish and international students attending a two-year English-taught master's programme, to apply for a personal mentor from private and public companies, and NGOs.

How can your mentor help you?

Your mentor will be a source of information — someone who will challenge and motivate you towards achieving your goals, give you advice, support and encourage you when needed.

The face-to-face meetings with your mentor help you to prepare for the transition from your studies to life as a professional. They will also help clarify your career ambitions and give you the opportunity to explore various career possibilities, as well as build relationships and networks for your future career. As the mentee, you are expected to drive the process forward.

This programme is intended for both for master's students who already know what their dream job is and for students who are in doubt about their career possibilities. As an international student, the meetings are also a unique chance to learn more about the job market in Sweden.


  • The programme starts in October and ends in May.
  • During this period, mentors and mentees are expected to meet eight times, with one hour per meeting.
  • In addition, some workshops/structured mentoring events will be organised.
  • Towards the end of the programme, a mentor survey will be conducted, involving both mentors and mentees.
  • Both mentors and mentees are expected to participate in all the programme's activities.

How to apply
