An individual mentoring program intensively supports the students who face high performance expectations during their studies. An intensive contact with lecturers (mentor-mentee) is essential for coping with the increased demands of the program and helps students during their career pathfinding. This network enables guidance and positioning of students individually according to their research interests and strengths in neuroscience.
A peer tutoring program among the students completes the networking. The peer tutors are experienced students who provide resources, encouragement, and direction to help the newbie students on their way to be independent learners and, eventually, scientists.
