International Peer Mentorship

International Peer Mentorship Program

A program designed to support new international students at the beginning of their studies with KPU. The program pairs current students "mentors" with new international students "mentees" for the first semesters of their academic studies.

. . .

Mentors are trained to support the needs of their mentees by providing them with information about resources and support services available to all KPU students. Mentors share their experience as KPU students with their mentees and assist them in developing the skills and strategies. In addition, mentors help create community at KPU by hosting online social events for mentees in the program to connect with other first-year students. Lastly, it's a great opportunity to get your work experience and make some money, while studying. Interested? APPLY TODAY!

. . .

Mentees are the first-semester international students at KPU, who will get paired up automatically with the mentor on their first semester. They will be contacted by their mentor during the first week of the classes and receive virtual support throughout the entire semester. As a mentee, make sure you reach out to your mentor if you have any questions or concerns. Join monthly social events, organized by mentors to meet new friends, play some games and more.
