As a mentor or note-taker for a student with a disability, you play a very important role. You support a student for them to succeed in their studies, while learning a lot yourself.

Being a mentor

Your role as a mentor will be adapted depending on the student’s difficulties. This often involves helping in planning and structuring studies, reviewing assignments and discussing what is expected of the student in their studies. Mentoring involves an average of two hours per week. This includes meetings with the student, preparation time and workshops.

Being a note-taker

Being a note-taker means allowing a student with study support to access the notes that you take during scheduled teaching time, such as lectures, seminars or workshops. You take notes as usual, but the notes must of course be readable by others than yourself.

How to become a note-taker

Many students with study support recruit a note-taker on their own by asking their fellow students. Once you have been approached by one or more students who want to access your notes, register by filling in the form.

Register for note-taking support assignments

Get in touch with students who need note-taking support

The teacher of your course can also add a note-taking support module on Canvas. In this module, you can enter your contact details if you want to become a note-taker, so that students with study support in your course can get in touch with you. Instructions for how the teacher creates the module can be found on the staff web under "For your work" and then "Teaching".

You will get paid for your work

As a note-taker, you receive a semester compensation of up to 4000 SEK before tax. The size of the compensation is based on how much of the semester you have been active as a note-taker. It is divided into 25 per cent, 50 per cent, 75 per cent or 100 per cent of semester.
