Each incoming student is assigned to an Exchange Mentor (a Koç University student) who acts as a guide and resource person throughout the semester. Each mentor is responsible for approximately five students and maintains weekly communication with each of them. The mentors go through a rigorous selection, interview, and training process before being assigned a group of students. Mentors are generally reliable, hard-working individuals open to cultural exchange. They take their students’ well-being into consideration at all times and are always ready to address your questions or concerns.
