What are Study Buddies?

The objective of the Study Buddy Programme is to foster interaction between foreign and German students at the Göttingen University.
Foreign and German students at the Georg-August University of Göttingen

  • mutually support each other during the orientation process at the university and the faculty
  • discuss (academic) texts, study together for exams, prepare reports or conduct research for term papers
  • improve their language skills
  • share information about their countries of origin
  • take part in cultural events and field trips as part of the InDiGU project
