Buddy Programme for Incomer
Dear International Students,
No matter if you come to FAU for a semester abroad or want to pursue a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree at our university, we are more than happy to have you here.
To make your start at FAU a little bit easier and to promote exchange between German and international students, we introduced the FAU Buddy-Programme
German and other already established students volunteer to offer individual support to newcomers. They help with everyday questions and introduce you to the city. They can tell you where to buy a bike, take you to social events and introduce you to other students.
This sounds good to you and you would like to get to know one of our Buddies? Feel Invited!
All international students (both exchange students and regular Bachelor’s and Master’s students) can register for the buddy programme on our buddy matching platform. After you have registered, completed and submitted your data for matching, you will soon be assigned buddies from your faculty.
Of course, our Buddy Program works on a purely voluntary basis and therefore you and your Buddy are free to spend as much time with each other as the two of you agree to.
