Become a mentor

We all face professional and personal challenges. The experiences that we gather over the years can be a source of knowledge, support and guidance for many who are just starting out on their career paths. Sharing personal experiences and knowledge from your career is exceptionally important for our students and recent graduates, as they are just preparing to enter the ‘real world’.

Ready to help?

  • Share information

    The University of Ljubljana strives for continuous development, for which the most important source of information is you, our former students.

    If you are willing to share your experiences with your studies at the UL, about the knowledge you gained here and how you used it in your career, . This will help us evaluate our study programmes and provide data for the development of the university in the future.

    Thank you in advance for your time and help.
