On entering the School, each new student will get a Mentor from among the group of senior students of the School.
The task of the Mentor is to help his/her student to integrate into the rest of the School at the beginning of his/her stay in Berlin. He/she advises the student on administrative questions, constantly follows his/her progress, and intervenes in the case of problems. The Mentor participates in planning the course programme during the initial phase and plays an important role as an independent contact person, eg. for career planning advice, during the research phase.
