Radboud Welcomes Newcomers started a buddy project to support refugee students in the programme with their daily life at Radboud University. You, as a buddy, might discover new perspectives, new experiences, and maybe even end up with a new friendship.
For the duration of one period (10 weeks) you are matched with a student within the Radboud Welcomes Newcomers programme. We are asking you to meet the student at least once every two weeks to help them with questions concerning location of lectures, online learning environment, academic skills etc.
Participation is on voluntary basis. You will be offered an intercultural communication training at the beginning of the trajectory. If you follow this training, you will receive a certificate. Moreover, there are several social activities that you and your matched student will be invited to during the block.
Are you interested in becoming a buddy?
The introduction day will take place on 26 January.
