The buddy programme is there to help out new students arriving in Groningen.
If you are new, and would you like to already know someone in Groningen before your arrival? Would you like to learn a bit more about The Netherlands and Groningen? Would you like to have someone who can help you with your questions during your time in Groningen? Having a buddy is a nice way to get in touch with students who can introduce you to (student) life in Groningen. Your buddy can give you some tips on how to get to Groningen, what places you need to go to in the city to do groceries, have drinks or where to party. Your buddy can help you with some practical things that need to be done. Of course he/she can also help you with all the other questions that might arise prior to or during your stay in Groningen!
The application deadline has been closed for now, but the programme will open again right before the next semester will begin (summer 2020)!
If you would like to become a buddy, to meet new people and help students who just moved to the city? That is also possible! The sign-ups for becoming a buddy will open again in summer!
