Studying abroad always comes with its challenges, but on this page we’ve collated some resources that might be of use to you when preparing for and adjusting to life in Denmark.

Connect with the Community
Knowing how to keep in touch and up to date with the mentor programme is an invaluable skill. Our primary method of communication with our mentees is email and our main contact address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Events and news relating to HIntSS are typically advertised on our website.
In addition to this, we also have a social media presence. Links to our social media pages can be found in the top left, when viewing this website on a desktop computer, tablet or laptop. They are also listed below:
Different mentor groups tend to adopt different methods of internal communication, according to the preferences of their members. Some, for example, prefer to use Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. If you are unable to use a particular mode of communication, please let your mentors know.
We also encourage all members (mentees and mentors) to make use of the HIntSS Lounge, which is a great relaxed space to meet people, grab coffee and study. The Lounge is located on South Campus; it is room 22.0.54.
