Mentorship Society


The Mentorship Society is an optional extra-curricular activity organized for select first-year students. With the contribution of our volunteer student mentors, the Society provides the means to get ahead with useful information and to make friends and social contacts early in the semester. It helps new students learn the ropes at IEU both before and after the first day of classes; in short, making the most of the freshman experience.

Once accepted and registered at IEU, incoming freshmen can apply for a place in the program, which entitles them to a range of benefits and perks to get them off to the best start possible.



Students who have reserved a place at IEU receive via email an invitation to apply.

Prospective Mentees may begin submitting applications online.


New Mentee applications continue to be accepted and assigned through the month.

Aug. 3: Round One Mentor assignments are sent out.
Aug. 23: Round Two Mentor assignments are sent out.

Mentees may contact their Mentors with any questions as soon as they have received their assignments.


Sept. 1: Round 3 Mentor assignments are sent out.

Saturday/Sunday Sept. 11-12: Mentorship Society Kick-Off Weekend (for all Society members) – planned activities for Mentors & Mentees to get to know each other (HYBRID event).

Week of Sept. 13: New Student Induction week. Mentors available to support Mentees as they acclimate into their new life at IEU!

New students can continue to apply until Sept. 30.

Various events exclusive to Society members will be held (Details TBA).


Mentors continue to be available to offer advice and support through the mid-term exam period.


Mentees submit feedback on their mentorship experience online.

Many Mentor-Mentee relationships continue throughout a student’s time at IE University… and some Mentees decide to become Mentors in future editions! Applications for the following year open in the Spring term.


"I was a lot more comfortable with the syllabus, professors and how to approach the subject. My Mentor also made me feel extremely included with everyone at IE and ensured all my problems were taken care of."
"I love being a Mentor. It feels nice to be there for someone and being able to help the new students that still don’t have much of an idea of how University works."
"I was able to ask my Mentor about the courses and she gave me advice on how to schedule my classes. I was even able to ask her about how to prepare for the semester, from managing time and studying, to handling the Spanish winter."
"In a short period of time, I was able to not only build a social network between many of the Mentors, but also between me and my Mentees, made some good friends, and really enjoyed the time I spent with them during our dinners every two weeks. I really think that the Mentorship Society has improved my ability to guide and share, and has allowed me to strengthen my leadership skills to a great extent."
"My Mentor definitely prepared me for the program I am currently in. I know that it will be a hard program, but speaking to her made me realise that if I plan and organise my time well, it is definitely doable."
"Being a Mentor allowed me to be in situations where I had to listen to students’ concerns, understand them, and then present possible solutions to their problems. This may sound very simple, but it is extremely difficult to do it well. Overall, a great experience and, without a doubt, this will help me in the future."
"I would like to become part of this program as a Mentor next year because I found it really useful, and it would have been a lot harder to understand how the University worked, how some professors or subjects were, and to adapt in general. Besides that, it was great having someone to talk to both before and after the semester began."
"I learned that sometimes it takes a little bit of time for others to open up and ask for help – that does not mean that they are generally uninterested or don’t need your help. It simply means that they are less extroverted and take more time to feel comfortable. I learned that the best thing to do in those situations is to be patient and show the other person that you don’t mind waiting for them; that you will be there even if they approach you after a month for the first time."
"It was really nice to serve as a mentor and help people who were initially nervous and a little lost, and now seeing them very happy and more confident in the University."
