Being an Academic Buddy
What does it mean to be an Academic Buddy?
If you join the Academic Buddy Programme, you will be an Academic Buddy to a student from a different country and university, with possibly different (academic) traditions, habits and experiences.
Being an Academic Buddy gives you the chance to:
- Share your cultural and linguistic knowledge about your home university and country.
- Help your buddy feel at home in the Netherlands and at Utrecht University or prepare your buddy for their study abroad.
- Join workshops and activities focused on developing your intercultural communication and competences (one of which is obligatory: Meet your Academic Buddy Event – check the agenda for upcoming events).
- Join social activities organized by BuddyGoDutch.
