Get a Buddy

The Buddy Programme would like to help you get accustomed to your new life in Freiburg. In a way, it should help you to ‘arrive’ more quickly in Freiburg. Freiburg law students will give a hand with your first few steps of academic and everyday life in Freiburg.

 

What does the Buddy Programme want to do?

FragezeichenThe Buddy Programme is intended to help at the start: a buddy is a German student who helps out a foreign student during his/her first six to eight weeks in Freiburg. This ranges from study to life and culture, everything from A to Z. If you are interested in the Buddy Programme and you register for it here, we will pass on your details to a nice ‘Freiburger’ law student, who will help you to settle in to your new life in Freiburg in no time at all. Important: this programme is aimed especially at law students and shouldn’t be confused with the International Club’s Buddy Programme!

 

 

How can you get a buddy?

Just write us an email and we’ll try to find you a buddy who matches. How much time you end up spending with your buddy is, in the end, up to you and your buddy. So that the programme runs as efficiently as possible and to avoid misunderstandings, the following rules apply:

  • To enable easier communication we will make both your and your foreign partner’s telephone number, email address, etc available
  • If possible, your buddy will pick you up in Freiburg from the station and will show you the way to your accommodation. If you are coming by car, you can arrange a meeting place
  • Your buddy will be available at the beginning of the semester (or after your arrival) for 6-8 weeks for at least one hour per week for questions, etc (this will be arranged individually). Whether you become friends, depends, of course, on how well you get along.
  • Your buddy is there for you for questions like: where is the Mensa? How do I register with the City of Freiburg? And where is actually the cheapest supermarket?
  • Your buddy will take you in the these first weeks to at least 1-2 events (party, Mudom-Bar etc)
