Supplemental Instruction (SI) mentors
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a tutoring programme, in which experienced students mentor new students in a group setting, by giving them the tools they need to solve problems and manage their studies. Students who wish to become a SI mentor need to first undergo SI training, and continue to be tutored and coached throughout their SI mentorship.
SI activities at Lund University are operated by the North European Centre for SI-PASS. If you are interested in starting SI-PASS activities at your department, please contact si-pass [at] stu [dot] lu [dot] se.

Other support activities
In addition to student support, Lund University conducts follow-up work and evaluations. This work aims to facilitate learning about study problems at an early stage, and thereby offer better support.
