The Study-Buddy Program was launched by the International Office to provide information to international newcomers and to help them adjust to the new environment. Every international student gets a so called “Buddy”, i.e. a German student who is familiar with the university's structures and who will give a helping hand during the stay abroad in Germany.
Most of the German students participating in the Study Buddy Program have spent a year abroad themselves and are aware of the problems that might arise and possible solutions. Your personal "Study Buddy" will provide valuable advice on everyday life in Bonn. By participating in the Study-Buddy Program, you will not only be able to cut red tape but will also come into contact with German students more easily. In the past, we ascertained that the program really helped to foster friendship and mutual understanding and broadened the cultural horizon of all participants.
We wish you all the best for your studies at the University of Bonn and are looking forward to you joining our program!
