As a support person for a student with a disability you have a very important role. A support person can work as a note-taking support, a mentor, a guide or a writing support. As a support person you support a student to succeed in their studies whilst at the same time learning a lot yourself.  

Apply to be a mentor

There are two ways to apply to be a mentor: applying via e-mail or completing an application form online.

To apply via e-mail, send an e-mail to the Mentoring Coordinator (mentorsamordnare@mau.se) and include:

  • A bit of information about yourself and why you would like to work as a mentor
  • A CV
  • A photo of your passport or a population registration certificate (in Swedish: personbevis)
  • If you would also be interested in working as a note-taker, a guide or a writing support. The mentoring coordinator can tell you more about these roles.

After receiving your e-mail, the Mentoring Coordinator will then contact you to arrange a meeting.  

Apply via e-mail

You can also apply by completing an online application form. Once we have received your application you will be contacted by the Mentoring Coordinator.
