Mentor – a helping hand
Each non-degree student coming to UwB gets a “helping hand” from a Polish student – they are called Mentors. They are all unionized in a great organization functioning at UwB for years – ESN (https://uwb.esn.pl/en). Its main aim is to help incoming foreign students, who who need to settle into their new environment. Mentors will help you in academic, social and practical integration process. Each academic semester they organize lots of activities, so that they can meet international students’ needs in best possible way. Below please find an examples:
- show you where the faculties, laboratories, libraries, International Cooperation Office, gym, dormitory, cafeterias, foreign language centre, POLLANDO etc. are.
- show you where the bus stations, biker rentals, shopping’s etc. are.
- help you to buy SIM Cards, connect with Wi-Fi, get a bus ticket, open a bank account etc.
- organize lots of cultural and social events, trips to various places, theme nights such as film night, language projects, international food fests etc.
