Mentoring at the UDE – What is it about?

Established in 2008, every faculty of the University of Duisburg-Essen offers a broad variety of individual and personal support for students of every area of studies through their “Mentoring-System (UMS)”.


The UMS has the aim to give the students orientation and guidance throughout every phase of their course of study to strengthen and support the students’ personal, professional and strategic competences so that they can successfully graduate.

Starting from the very first day of matriculation students can choose from various offers and different types of advisory services like information, counseling and assistance with one person, in groups or peers or E-Tutorials of professors, academic staff and trained tutors.
