International Buddy Programme

IBP goes digital! Staying digitally close at a time of social distancing: Even though in-person meetings are currently limited, we have adjusted our programme by drawing on the support of digital media so that we can all still support each other at THM.

  • Are you interested in meeting people from all over the world and building an international network on campus?
  • Do you want to improve your foreign language skills and discover new cultures?
  • Would you like to take part in free and interesting field trips, events and workshops?

Then the International Buddy Programme (IBP) is just right for you!

Every semester the International Buddy Programme builds buddy teams consisting of newcomers, that is, newly arrived international students, and oldies, namely experienced THM students and employees. The buddy team is a win-win for both members - Newcomers receive orientation and make fast, new connections at the university. In return oldies gain intercultural experience and exposure to foreign languages.

In addition, you have the opportunity to get to know further buddy teams and participants by taking part in our events. All current events are available in our Welcome & Stay Calendar at Events and Activities.
