Peer-mentoring program for incoming (first year or transfer) students: recognizing the challenges of living abroad, we designed a unique peer-mentoring system for first-year students (freshers) titled SAM-buddy peer-mentoring. It aims to assist new students on the 1:1 basis for the period of 8 weeks in the fall semester. Please, learn more about the program by visiting: UNIVET peer-mentoring.
Learning techniques and study method 1 credit elective course: medical school tends to demand a lot from students, however, most students arrive with one or two study techniques that may not be suitable to deal with the extremely high volume of materials need to be learned at a rapid pace. The elective course aims to offer insight to other studying methods, ways to save time and energy. Look for course description in the NEPTUN system for more details.
Study-buddy and study-group finder services: In medical school studying collectively to prepare for classes or an exam have a great added value. UNIVET now offers a supplementary experimental, new tool for its students to find study-partners. Visit the www.studygroups.hu website and click on study-buddy & study-group finder to sign up. Once there is a positive match to your search parameters, you will receive a notification and the contact info of the given group/partner you can join.
