Becoming a buddy will be a great opportunity for you to help internationals in Groningen! As a buddy you will guide one or more international students in your city, and answer their burning questions. The Buddy & Integration Committee will link you to an international student that could really use your help. We will exchange the necessary contact information between you and the student(s) which enables you to contact the international student before he/she arrives. International students are usually interested in finding out stuff on practical matters regarding the best way to travel from Schiphol to Groningen or the easiest way to go to their room or student house in the city. If appreciated by the international students, you can offer to pick them up from the train station upon their arrival in Groningen. In addition, you can show the student(s) around the city and help with buying a proper bicycle, opening a bank account, giving a tour around the faculty, going to ESN events, etc. Besides these practical matters most international students are also very interested in getting to know the student life of Groningen. As a buddy you are of course the perfect person to guide them to the best cafés, restaurants and bars!

Are you interested in becoming a buddy to a new international student next semester? Then apply via this form! If you have any questions about the buddy program, do not hesitate to send an email to bic@esn-groningen.nl or to integration@esn-groningen.nl.

Please pick the one you like best. This way your interest will be taken into account by the program we use to automatically match you. This will also mean that if you type multiple words in the 'other' section it will probably not find a match. Please also be aware that we will always try to keep your preference into consideration but it will not always be possible.

It might take some time before you get matched to an international student. Especially in the first couple of weeks it might take some time.. Thank you for helping us out and if you have any questions, you can send an email to bic@esn-groningen.nl.
Do you have any further questions/remarks?
Your answer
In case we do not have enough buddies for the amount of international students applying, can we contact you to see if you are willing to be a buddy for 1 or 2 more international students so they can get matched as well? *
Would you be willing to come to an information evening to get more information about being a buddy?
Can we use your email address for promotion of future BIC events and other ESN programmes for which we need volunteers?
