Internationalisation At Home

I@H is een overkoepeld begrip voor activiteiten die gericht zijn op het aanbieden van internationaliseringservaringen voor niet-mobiele eigen studenten en medewerkers. Centraal staat het idee om interculturele en internationale competenties te ontwikkelen bij studenten en medewerkers.

De volgende activiteiten worden georganiseerd aan onze faculteit:

Buddy’s voor inkomende uitwisselingsstudenten

Enkele jaren geleden startte de faculteit Politieke en Sociale Wetenschappen met een buddywerking voor inkomende uitwisselingsstudenten om de integratie van de buitenlandse studenten met de UGent studenten te bevorderen. Vorig academiejaar (19-20) hebben 30 UGent studenten 100 inkomende studenten in onze faculteit begeleid. We hopen ook dit jaar onze gaststudenten op dezelfde wijze te ontvangen.

Wil je graag buitenlandse of Waalse studenten wegwijs maken in de faculteit dan kan je je nu al opgeven als buddy om inkomende studenten te begeleiden in eerste en/of tweede semester door in te schrijven via buddyformulier of te mailen naar mailadres van de verantwoordelijken voor de buddywerking in UGent PS via internationalbuddy.psw@ugent.be

Op UFORA Welcome Abroad kunnen buddy's meer informatie vinden en ook nuttige tips voor FAQ van inkomende studenten.
