Buddy programme

About the programme

The idea is simple: students of TU Bergakademie Freiberg, the "buddies", 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 Feiberg is over.

What does a buddy do?

Especially in the initial phase you are the contact person for the new student. You give him/her practical support and listen to his/her worries.

In particular, you may be asked to help with flat-hunting, enrolment, paperwork. You can also offer joint free time activities. How about inviting your buddy to your favourite pub or to a party! It's all up to you and your buddy-partner, how much involved you get.

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.

Interested? Send us an e-mail with your contact data, foreign languages and avaliability.
