Buddy Programme

The Buddy Programme of the Faculty of Business Management and Economics of the University of Würzburg offers assistance to newly-arrived exchange students from our partner universities. The aim of the programme is to facilitate the integration of international students into German students' community and academic life at our faculty, and to develop ties between international and local students.

Before you come to Würzburg, you may apply for a German buddy. We want to make the start of your stay as easy as possible and - if this is your wish - match you with a German buddy. Participation in the buddy programme is free of charge. All our buddies are experienced faculty students who would like to help you get to know the university and life in Germany. Many of them have been part of our exchange programmes abroad and they want to give their international experience back to the newcomers.

Your buddy will help you answer all kinds of questions before and after your arrival in Würzburg. The buddies take care of a manifold socio-cultural programme offered to all international students of the faculty which runs in the course of each semester (wine-tasting, city-rally, bar-hopping, campus dinner, film festival, grill parties at the Main riverside, mini-golf, biking etc). 

Our German buddies are looking forward to welcoming you to our faculty. If you wish to get matched with one of them, please write an email "WANT A BUDDY"
