BUDDY PROGRAM

***Applications for both, international students and Swedish students you will find below 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 the first local an international student will meet! Who knows, you might consider having an exchange after that as well!

The recruitment of the buddies for the HT18 is open! Last date to apply 9th of September.

When you have applied to the program you will be matched up in a buddy group: 3xBuddies and 9xNewbies. The International Student Coordinators will contact you by email once you'll be matched with a Buddy group.

The buddies will be the ones to take the lead while deciding events for the Buddy program. First open information meeting for all who wants to learn more about the program will take place 21st of May 17-19. After that, buddies that already applied will be invited for a planning meeting in June. Finally, we will meet the international students once the Fall term starts! 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, and it’s a great way to experience the Swedish culture! It is also a great opportunity to practice your language skills. 

If you are a member, or will become one, of the Stockholm University Student Union and/or the Law Students' Association, you can apply for the Buddy Program Fall 2018. 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: 3xBuddies and 9xNewbies. The International Student Coordinators will contact you by email once you'll be matched with a Buddy group.

When you will be assigned a buddy group, you will have exciting weeks ahead with many events 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 the fall semester 2018 is Sunday 9th of September
