Application: UCN Career Mentoring Programme

Apply for the Career Mentor Programme called STAY in Nordjylland and become a Mentee

UCN Business and UCN Technology are now launching a retention programme to help UCN students find their way to the Danish labour market. We call this programme the "UCN Career Mentoring Programme". We are matching selected students to mentors from different companies in Nordjylland.

As an international student, you have probably thought about your future after completing your studies. The thought of staying in Denmark – and especially exploring the opportunities here in Nordjylland – has probably occurred to you. As you have perhaps experienced in your studies up until now the Danish system and culture varies from what you are used to in your home country. The same goes for the Danish work culture, and has an international student it may be hard for you to find an opening into the Danish companies.

How can you benefit from the programme?

  • Add a practical and real life aspect to your education
  • Identify your key areas of strength and use them in your advantage with help from your mentor
  • Gain valuable experience about Danish business life and work culture
  • Find the answers to specific questions and assistance in overcoming obstacles you have encountered in your previous job search
  • Advice on networking
  • Experience on more subtle matters such as: social relations on the workplace, dress codes, language, unwritten rules and codes of conduct, culture, etc.
  • Assistance to clarify your competencies and your goals for the future

How do I apply?

There are two ways to enter the programme:

  • You have to be a new student (Admission year 2015-2016) and enrolled in a Danish course
