Buddy Program

Welcome to the Buddy Program at Goethe University!

The Buddy Program provides international first-year students with a buddy who is studying in a higher semester and supports them in their orientation at Goethe University. The accompanying buddies can contribute their experience and receive a certificate for their voluntary commitment.

The goal of the Buddy Program is to give international students a good start to their studies and to contribute to cultural and linguistic exchange at the university.

Current information

The registration for the winter semester 23/24 is now open! The matching will start around mid-August and last until the end of October.
