Peer Support network

Master’s degree students have the opportunity to join a career-related Peer Support network in association with Malmö University.

This is an initiative to encourage career-related mental wellbeing by helping Master’s degree students getting in touch with other Master’s degree students (i.e., Master’s degree peers) to discuss and support own and Master’s degree peers’ career-related challenges and mental wellbeing. As such, participation and contribution is voluntary but its success relies on “sharing is caring”.

More about Peer Support network

In short, the career-related Peer Support network IS…

…an initiative to prompt discussions on the meaning of self-awareness, self-confidence and ability to take ownership on career-related transition and or progression
…a place wherein you and your Master’s degree peers are given the chance to work on career-related challenges and support own and Master’s degree peers’ career-related transition and or progression

and NOT…

…a course with coursework
…a place to discuss field or study specific details (e.g., how SPSS works or what research method to use for my specific research project)

I hope you feel inspired to join! If so, keep an eye open for the career-related Peer Support network 2023 – 2024. Instruction on how to apply will be posted here early summer 2023.
