BUDDY PROGRAM

*Applications for both international and Swedish students are at the bottom of this page*

Description for Swedish students (Buddies):

Meet people from all around the world, exchange your culture and learn more about others, show the best sides of the Swedish culture and be one of the first locals an international student will meet! Who knows, you might consider having an exchange semester after that as well!

The recruitment of the buddies for the VT19 is open! Last date to apply 6th of January.

When you have applied to the program you will be matched up in a buddy group with both Buddies and Newbies. The International Student Coordinators will contact you by email once you have been matched with a Buddy group.

The Buddies will be the ones to take the lead on deciding events for the Buddy program. First meet-up for all Buddies will be arranged on the 14th of January. After that, we will meet the international students (Newbies) on January 25th. Good time with interesting people is a guarantee! Apply for to become a Buddy below!

Description for international students (Newbies):

Getting a buddy is the smartest thing you can do this semester! Make new friends, get someone to help you with your questions and concerns. It is a great way to experience the Swedish culture and also a great opportunity to practice your language skills. 

If you are a member, or will become one, of the Stockholm University Student Union (SUS), you can apply for the Buddy Program of Spring 2019. This program is open to students from all faculties at Stockholm University.

When you have applied to the program you will be matched up in a buddy group of both Buddies and Newbies. The International Student Coordinators will contact you by email once you'll be matched with a Buddy group.

You will have exciting weeks ahead with many fun events and activities coming up! We look forward for your initiative taking over while getting to know your buddy-team members during the program. 

Due to the high number of international applicants and the aim of providing the best buddy group experience and quality to international students during this program, we are not always able to assign a buddy group to every international student. Thus, every student enrolled in the buddy program will be contacted latest a week after the application deadline. However, in case you did not get a buddy group by that time, you are still on our waiting list and might be enrolled if somebody drops out. While you wait for your match, join our open events for all students! 

If you have any further questions, contact us by email: international.2@sus.su.se

The application deadline for Newbies of Spring 2019 is January 23rd
