Buddy up!

Especially at the beginning of their studies, refugees students have problems to find their way at German universities. They have arrived in a foreign country, confronted with language barriers, they have to get used to new mentalities and at the same time work hard to manage their studies. Within the scope of our buddy-program we are looking for superheroes that help us to support refugee students. Your tasks as buddy contain:

  •  Help your buddy with the orientation at our university
  •  Give tips and advices for everyday life in Germany
  •  Help your buddy with the common internet portals of our university (e.g. Stud.IP)
  •  Possibly help your buddy with his or her application
  •  Possibly help your buddy learning German

The objective of our buddy progrma is to promote intercultural exchange to help refugee students to find their way at our university. Ideally, you and your buddy will discover common interests and develop a friendship.

You want to get involved? Then please send the filled out document to international(at)remove-this.hs-rm.de.
