WHAT DO I NEED A BUDDY FOR?

The Study Buddy Programme promotes the intercultural exchange between international and local students. Furthermore it aims to give you an easier start into this new period of life in Germany and wants you to feel welcome here at Leibniz Universität and in Hannover, the greenest city of Germany. 

The placement takes place according to similar interests, age, sex and your field of study. Since it is a free and voluntary programme, the form and frequency of the exchange depends greatly on you and your buddy. 

There are additional leisure time activities within the Study Buddy Programme in which all buddies can participate. The International Office also provides ongoing support if questions or problems occur.

POSSIBLE SUPPORT FROM YOUR BUDDY:

If needed your buddy can assist you concerning the following topics:

  • assistance related to your arrival (e.g. airport/central station Hannover pick-up)
  • dealing with paperwork and bureaucratic affairs (application of visa, registration at the city)
  • regular get together
  • tours around campus and the city
  • excursions or participating together in events
  • improving your German language skills by active communication 
  • words and deeds if questions or problems occur

Applications for the upcoming semester are accepted only till the end of October respectively the end of April. Subsequented applications can be considered for the next semester only.
