Mentoring offers two types of support: pedagogical and moral. The mentors provide sessions of varying length depending on the needs, during which they help the student to understand a point, an exercise, a correction, to assimilate the methodology, to practice a presentation, an interview… The system also benefits those who give their knowledge, for some it proves to be a first pedagogical experience, an opportunity to meet and share. It is the chance to open to up to new perspectives;  a student accompanying another offers a different point of view from that of the teacher.
