Buddy Programme

Internationale Studierende an der Uni Erfurt

The International Office hosts a Buddy Programme for new international exchange students within which each exchange student gets assigned a personal student buddy. The programme is designed as an initial aid in the arrival phase. Your buddy will contact you by e-mail before your arrival so that you can clarify any questions you might have before your departure. Your buddy can:

  • pick you up from the train station when you arrive and help you become acquainted with the campus
  • show you around the city
  • help you handle arrival formalities
  • help you make early contact with German native speaker students
