Would you like to master your daily study routine jointly with a partner and start cooperating internationally during your studies? InDiGU arranges and supports partnerships between german and international students! InDiGU offers 3 types of study partnerships:
STUDY BUDDY PROGRAMME
International and Göttingen students who study the same subject cooperate in their specific fields of study. The enrolment for the Study Buddy Programme is via the online registration form. Your registration then will be entered in a database. The InDiGU team will look for a possible Study Buddy and inform you about how to contact your prospective partner. Of course you can also enrol together with a partner you already know: Study Buddy Programme
ACADEMIC WRITING PARTNERSHIPS
German and international students jointly develop their academic writing proficiency in scientific german, relating to their specific subject areas as well as on an interdisciplinary level. The academic writing partnerships are arranged and supervised by the international writing centre. You can enrol either individually or as a complete working or learning group.
LANGUAGE TANDEM PARTNERSHIPS
Students improve their language skills and learn about different cultures. The enrolment for a language tandem partnership is via the following link: http://tandem-uni-goettingen.matorixmatch.com/
InDiGU offers a supporting programme for all study partnerships to encourage integration and social contacts beyond the daily study routine. More information are provided in the Foyer International programme.
