The buddy programme

The faculty organises a buddy programme that pairs together local students and international students. The local students welcome the international students, guide them around the faculty and the city, and form the first point of contact for practical questions.

We have set up the buddy programme because international students are faced with many questions about our lifestyle, studies, work or pastimes when they first arrive in the first (from September) or second (from February) term. To make matters more difficult, it seems it’s not easy to get in contact with Flemish students.
