Mentorship Program


Students at IIMR are assigned faculty member who will act as their Personal Tutor throughout their career in the institute. The role of the mentor is to provide support and advice not only on academic matters, but also on any personal difficulties. In particular it is important that the mentee should inform his/her mentor, as soon as possible, if his/her studies have been disrupted in any way (e.g. through illness, etc.). Mentors are often called upon to speak on behalf of their mentees at academic meetings, so it is very much in the student's interest to maintain regular contact. Mentees are required to see their Mentors at least once a week, though they are encouraged to maintain more frequent contact and not wait for a formal meeting if they have something they wish to discuss urgently. Notices will be placed on the Departmental notice board in advance of session that has been scheduled for formal Personal mentor meetings.

Your Mentor is intended to provide you with support in matters relating to your studies. If you wish to discuss matters of a sensitive nature, you may find it more appropriate to visit your mentor, who will maintain confidentiality as far as possible.
