Be a Buddy: Programme to accompany international students

Living in another country is exciting and promises new, intercultural adventures. But sometimes, just looking for the next Post Office or registering at the local council can turn into adventures that you would have liked to have done without. It doesn’t have to be like that! As part of the Buddy Programme, the International Office introduces international students to students from Greifswald, creating a peer-to-peer support service.

Advantages of the Buddy Programme

  • Further your intercultural competence!
  • Extend your language skills!
  • Get to know open-minded German and international students!
  • Take part in fun events and excursions!
  • Receive a certificate for your international engagement!

Students in Greifswald

Whether it’s a borrowed bike, an invitation to a party or accompanying someone to the library – you can be a part of this project and in your function as tutor for international students, you can play a role in making Greifswald a home port for international guests.
