What is the Buddy Programme?

Suppose you are going to a new place that you have never been before... and you imagine yourself lost and without a clue how, where or when to begin your journey. We all know that feeling, so for those reasons we give our Buddy Programme! You will be paired up with a local student that will be your friend and also the one you can turn to when you need help.

What to expect from your Buddy ?

  • To be a secure source of information before your arrival (and after!);
  • Take you to the International Office (University), ESN Office, CLAIM, UA_i;
  • Help you to find accommodation;
  • Leading you in a tour through the city;
  • Helping you when you need to take medical assistance;
  • Be your friend.


To join all you have to do is register in Papaya matching system and follow this next very simple steps to be enrolled in this programme! 

After completing all these steps all you have to do is wait for an email with the information about your buddy. Keep in mind that the matching process takes a little bit of time
