Senior Students are first or second year BSc Students and sencond semester or second year MSc Students. They are there on the Mentor Class and work together with the Mentor Teacher on the BSc Learning Methodology course and on the Preparation course for master studies and developing learning skills. They help you with their knowledge aquired arriving to Hungary, getting to know Budapest and starting their university life at the Faculty of Informatics. They are helping hands you can reach out for when you have a question on the Mentor Classes.

Get to know some of them! 🙂

Here you can read what Lewis Mjomba wrote why he wants to become a Senior MSc Student for the second year in a row:

“Being a student in Hungary taking further studies, the feeling of entering in a new environment can be overwhelming. Everything feels new from the transport system, education system, shopping, language, culture, traditions, holidays, just to mention a few. Adaptation to this new environment may take a long or a short time depending on one’s willingness, internal and external support. Proper counsel and support ease’s the change.

Living in Hungary, balancing the change in environment, and conducting my studies helped me understand the need for mentorship. The experiences I have being mentored and as a mentor created a passion in me to also mentor others. It will be my greatest pleasure to help other students settle in their studies in Hungary and find their way within the country. Being part of the mentor team as a senior student will give me a chance to facilitate and support a smooth transition of incoming students into Hungary.

To future students joining ELTE faculty of informatics, coming to a new place can have uncertainties but am confident that with the help of lecturers, family members, friends, and mentors the change will become easy and more comfortable. I am also more than willing to help you when challenges arise, and your stay here will be awesome.”
