Please note that students that enroll into a ND between February 26, 2019 and April 8, 2019 will experience our updated mentor support model. This section will only apply to those enrolled between February 26, 2019 and April 8, 2019. If you are continuing in Term 2 or 3 of a program with Term 1 starting before that date, these services do not apply. Please also note that access to updated mentor support may not be available for some regions or some types of registrations for Nanodegree programs. For instance if you are an Enterprise student or part of a Scholarship program, you will not get mentor support beyond the express terms of the registration and/or your registration is managed by the party who contracted for Udacity's services.
Each student will be learning in a session with typically up to 14 other students and one Udacity mentor. Mentors are dedicated to your success, and have technical expertise in your Nanodegree so they can help you troubleshoot through your challenges.
In addition to providing group encouragement and technical support to all of the students in your session, your mentor will also work with you 1:1 to help you create a personalized learning plan that is based off of your needs as a student and off of what is needed to meet your Nanodegree deadlines. You will have weekly meetings with your mentor to check in on your progress and hold you accountable as you work towards your goals.
We know how important mentorship is to an individual’s professional development, so we want your experience with your mentor and with the students in your session to be stellar. To make sure you’re getting the support you need, we rely on you to share feedback regularly with us. We’ll remind you every 2 weeks to fill out a quick survey evaluating your mentor; please look out for this reminder, and we ask that all students take a moment to share feedback- it’s really important that we’re getting feedback from you regularly so we can continue to improve the learning and mentorship experience for everyone!
