Buddy Program: Supporting Refugees in Everyday Life at the University
To help refugees who want to start or continue their studies get used to everyday life at the university, Freie Universität Berlin has launched a buddy program that allows students and employees of Freie Universität to help in various ways, whether as conversation partners for those learning the language, by explaining how the study programs in a certain subject are structured, by giving a guided tour of the campus and university institutions such as the libraries, or by helping their mentees with applications and navigating bureaucratic hurdles.
Members of the university community who are interested in helping with this program can use this online form to sign up for the database that is used to match volunteers with refugees. We will contact you if we find a person matching your profile.
If you are a refugee looking for a mentor, please use this online form to register. We will contact you as soon as we find a person matching your profile.
