What is the Buddy Programme?

The Bauhaus Internationals Buddy Programme aim is to connect German and international students. With the programme we want to support the cultural exchange and give you the opportunity to exchange different ideas, opinions and lifestyles. The buddy programme also wants to help the internationals to improve their German skills and give guidance in questions concerning German everyday life.
We are constantly looking for German and international students who are either wanting to be a buddy or are looking for one. Once you contacted us, we will try to match you with a buddy as soon as possible.
To give you the possibility to tell us about your experiences in the buddy program and get to know other buddies, we will put up a regular buddy meeting in different bars and caf├ęs. The next meeting will always be announced on this website.

What is a buddy doing?

Your buddy is someone you can talk to during your stay in Weimar. Whether it is for a quick question, a coffee, a get-together or a long lasting friendship, your buddy will be here to make your time enjoyable.
You and your buddy should meet on a regular basis, but it's completely up to you how often you meet and how you spend your time. For example you can go to parties, join a sports course at the university or go to the movies. The most important thing is that your buddy is your friend.
