All tutors and mentors are essential for HFT Stuttgart and in great demand in various areas. They support and encourage students at eye level, offer assistance and advice in the learning process and help first-year students in particular to integrate into student life. And the best thing about it: The students are qualified in the Centre for Teaching and Learning, receive credit points and can apply for advertised jobs as student tutors or mentors at the HFT Stuttgart and earn extra money for their studies.

  • Give critical feedback to students
  • Answer questions on all issues relating to studies

All tutors take part in an entry, advanced and final module. At the same time, in an accompanying module, they are given the opportunity to deal with their individual practical experiences and receive advice.

Mentors

Tasks

  • Accompany the entire Orientation Week

"The mentor qualification offered me the opportunity to improve my soft skills and to develop personally. These experiences help me to cope better with my everyday life at university and are certainly also useful with regard to my future professional life".
