Getting a buddy is the best way to make your start in Braunschweig easy and enjoyable. Buddies are senior students who know TU Braunschweig well and volunteered to support new international students. They will assist you upon your arrival and help you settle into your new surroundings and life in Braunschweig.
Life is that much easier when you have a buddy to explain things.
Also it's an easy way to meet people from all over the world and make new friends. The programme is offered by the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) in cooperation with the International House.
When you register for the programme, you will be matched with a suitable Buddy. Your buddy will contact you via e-mail or whats app before you come to Braunschweig and can help you with any important questions you might have. Once you arrive in Braunschweig, your buddy will
pick you up from the train station in Braunschweig,
take you to your accommodation,
answer your questions regarding to living and studying in Braunschweig,
help you with all kinds of administrative issues such as registering with the local authorities, enrolling at university, opening a bank account or taking out a health insurance policy.
Once all this is done, you can begin your studies well prepared and enjoy Braunschweig’s student life. In order for the buddy teams to grow even closer together, the ESN Braunschweig also offers extra events for participants of the buddy programme.
