A well-ordered life is like climbing a tower; the view halfway up is
better than the view from the base, and it steadily becomes
finer as the horizon expands William Lyon Phelps

Would you like to have an Erasmus Buddy?

Why do I need an Erasmus Buddy?

Whether it be helping to overcome language barriers, academic expectation, or even just being introduced to a new group of friends, your Erasmus Buddy is a great resource.

While you don’t "need" an Erasmus Buddy, having one can be invaluable. Not only will having an Erasmus Buddy help you to adjust to living in a new country, but  they can lead to friendships lasting beyond your Erasmus stay.

When do I meet my Erasmus Buddy?

The first meeting can take place shortly after the orientation week for incoming students (in-person when possible, or online). You will be notified via email so do not forget to check your inbox! (P. S. Matches can also be re-arranged)


How are the matches made?

The matches are made based on the filled registration forms you are sending. This means that field of study, interests and other similarities between you will be taken into consideration.
