What is the Buddy Programme?

Going abroad to study is an amazing experience but can be quite overwhelming too. By matching incoming students with students who have been living in Groningen for a while, the Buddy Programme aims to facilitate the stay of new students. Buddies can show new students around the city and answer some practical questions. Next to that the Buddy & Integration committees organises various activities throughout the semester for all buddies.
