Buddy Program

[Translate to Englisch:] zwei Studentinnen unterschiedlicher Herkünfte umarmen sich

Our Buddy Program was created for international students, as well as for people who would like to support international students during their first time in Freiburg. They can find a buddy through the Buddy Program or become a buddy to assist the international students especially, but not only, after their arrival in Freiburg and support them with everyday things.

I need a Buddy in Freiburg

Welcome to Freiburg!

When you begin with your study or your semester abroad in Freiburg, you will encounter a new country, a new culture, a foreign language and another education system. The first step is never easy…

Various questions will go through your mind such as „What kind of paperwork do I have to complete?“, „How can I organize my study or my timetable?“, „Where can I go grocery shopping?“ etc.…

We from the International Club have someone to support you!

One of our Freiburg Buddies will accompany you and help you with all difficulties. We aim to make you feel at home in the city and at the universities quickly after your arrival in Freiburg.

I want to be Freiburg Buddy

Are you curious about other cultures? Would you like to experience new encounters in Freiburg? Do you want to support international students in Freiburg?

Then, join us as a Freiburg Buddy at the International Club Freiburg! As a Freiburg Buddy, you will accompany students from other countries before and after their arrival in Freiburg.

One more thing…

The Buddy Program does not focus on the language tandem. If you would just like to find a tandem partner, you can join our Tandem Platform [link to the Tandem Platform] or the Facebook group SWFR Tandem [link to the Facebook group of SWFRpe SWFR Tandem].
