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 newly arrived international students (so-called Incoming Buddies) to local students from Greifswald (Local Buddies), 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!
- Local Buddies can receive a certificate for their international engagement!
- And most likely you will start a lifelong friendship!
