Welcome to the Mentee registration form for MINGA Mentoring Program at TUM Department of Informatics!
All fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required. Additional information can be entered at the end of the form. 
An email confirming your registration will be sent to your email address. If you have any further questions, please contact us via minga-mentoring@in.tum.de.

What is the MINGA program about?
MINGA Mentors voluntarily assist their assigned Mentee during his or her stay. This includes, but is not limited to, supporting Mentees in administrative matters, study questions, choice of courses, tips for accommodation, adaptation to life in Munich, and further questions.

Your MINGA Matching
The match with your Mentor will be made based on the information you provide so perceive this form as way to tell us whom you would like to meet and what you would like to share with your Mentor. This registration matches Mentors with international students of the intake for summer semester 2024. International students usually arrive between March and April 2024. As this is during the semester break, mentors might not be in Munich over that period of time, but they will nevertheless be available via email or Zoom. 

Commitment
You are expected to spend some time with your Mentor, provided your schedule allows it, especially at the beginning of the semester. Approach your Mentor yourself and be active right after the matching. Your Mentor is looking forward to an interactive and reciprocal relationship that is mutually beneficial! There might be some breaks in the communication (e.g. during examination period or travelling time) but make sure that both sides of the MINGA Mentoring Match know about it. 

Important: In case you postpone your TUM study start but have already been matched, please inform us as soon as possible about your withdrawal. You have to apply anew for the next semester! Mentors only sign up for the up-coming semester, not the following one, and therefore usually don't have the capacities to support you anymore.

Slack
All event organization, communication and creation of interest groups for the MINGA Mentoring program will happen on Slack, a free app/web service. You will receive an invitation by email after you have been successfully matched. Please pay close attention to our Slack channels as we will announce news, events and important information only via Slack. If you decide to use Slack as an app on your phone, consider enabling notifications. You can find more information about it here: https://slack.com.

Deadline
You can register as a MINGA Mentee for summer semester 2024 until Sunday, January 21, 2024 23:59 CET, where you will be considered for the matching round!
