German "Buddys" supporting incoming students in Germany

Buddy Programm

The Buddy Programme at the FOM University of Applied Sciences aims to support international students in their transition to a new phase of life in a foreign country with a different language and culture. Especially the first weeks and the first semester are often characterised by many new, foreign impressions and also doubts and worries.

That is why we have set up the Buddy Programme for our international students, in which current FOM students support new international students with both study-related and non-academic questions about life in Germany.

Of course, this happens on a voluntary basis on both sides. We hope that this programme will make it easier for the new international students to start in Germany and that there will also be a cultural exchange between the students on site. 

You should register for the Buddy Programme if you

  • would like to get to know local FOM students
  • are interested in German culture and cultural exchange
  • are interested in the German language
  • would like to explore your new surroundings together with FOM students
