Buddy programme

About the programme

The idea is simple: experienced students of TU Bergakademie Freiberg get in touch with international students new to Freiberg. New students might appreciate help especially during their first days in Freiberg and at the university. A buddy can help you e.g. with flat-hunting, enrolment, administrative paperwork or if you have difficulties with the German language. It's not uncommon that international friendships develop and continue after the study time in Freiberg is over.

Be somebody's hero, become a buddy

Would you like to help future fellow students from abroad to find their way around Freiberg and at a German university at the beginning of the semester? Then become a buddy!

What does a buddy do?

At the beginning of the semester you will become a guide for the new student. You give him/her practical support and explain how things in Freiberg as well as in Germany work.

In particular, you're helping out with visits to the authorities. You can also offer joint free time activities.

To be a buddy is lots of fun. You'll enhance your interpersonal skills and learn a lot about German offices. You'll meet new interesting people and form new friendships.
