Applications for Buddy-Program are now available

Our Buddy-Program is soon starting its third round.

The program ist targeted at refugees that want to apply for university. Every refugee buddy will be matched with a local, who can help with questions regarding studies, as well as everyday problems and who can introduce their buddies to the local scene. In the past two semesters the program has enabled many language tandems and frienships. Every month, we organize an event for all participants to meet, eat and have fun.

You can apply to be part of the program here. Application deadline is April 21. We will then assign your buddy until the end of April and hold the first meeting in May.
