Buddy Tasks

You play an important role as a buddy to new students during their early days. Your main responsibilities are to offer guidance, support and listen to any concerns or problems that new international students may have.

Your typical duties include 

  • helping them find suitable accommodation and assisting with enrollment, 
  • picking them up from Freiberg train station and accompanying them to their accommodation, 
  • being there for them during visits to the authorities, and 
  • organizing leisure activities.

The assistance can be tailored to suit each student's needs and depends on their level of engagement.

Confirmation of Participation

After active participation in the Buddy Program, you will get a comprehensive certificate of participation in case you withdraw from the program. 

A simple confirmation of program participation is possible during the semester for which one has registered.
