Student buddies

Student Buddies are students who work on a voluntary basis to welcome international students to the university. They organize many social activities especially at the start of the semester, but also throughout the year.

Students at the School of Business, Economics and Law

There are two student associations that have buddy programmes for international students at the School of Business, Economics and Law. IntU for exchange students and GSO for degree seeking master's students. 

IntU will assign exchange students a student buddy and place you in a buddy group prior to the start of the semester. Below you will find contact details in case you need to get in touch with IntU.
