Why become a buddy?

It is a great idea to become a buddy because you will be a part of an international environment and develop your intercultural skills, while meeting other students.
Buddy tasks:

  • Contacting students before their arrival
  • Picking up students at the train station
  • Showing students around the city and the campus
  • Organizing social and cultural activities

Benefits of becoming a buddy:

  • Improved soft skills (problem solving, event planning, etc.)
  • Improved language skills
  • Broader network both in and outside Denmark
  • Special events and trainings for buddies
  • Free ESNcard

This activity is volunteer-based. After you sign up, you will be contacted by the responsible coordinator. You will then be invited to attend a buddy training, in order to prepare you to welcome the new students.

Are you ready?
