Buddy student assistance

The aim of the buddy assistance project is to support international students. The buddies are part of the project “StiL – Studieren in Leipzig” (“Study in Leipzig”) which is financed by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Their field of work includes the following tasks:

  • Organisation of the peer to peer programme called „BeBuddy“
  • Support and consultation for international students
  • Interview project with international students who are registered for a whole study programme of degree
Group Discussion: “Speak to us”

Why and how do people from abroad decide to study at our department? What had to be prepared before arriving? How did you experience the start of the semester term? The buddies aim to get information in order to improve internal structures of organisation and support. The international students who are studying their whole degree at the University of Leipzig can provide first-hand information and experiences for this specific subject. The interview data will be treated anonymously.
