• Are you interested in meeting students from all over the world and making new contacts?
  • Do you want to improve your foreign language skills or are you thinking about studying or living abroad?
  • Do you want to take part in a programme with a wide variety of interesting and fun field trips, events and seminars?

Then the International Buddy Programme is just right for you. The International Buddy Programme builds “buddy teams” consisting of newly arrived international students and  THM employees and students (both German and international students). Our goal is to promote intercultural relationships and help new international students get off to a good start at THM and in their new surroundings.

IBP goes digital! Digital closeness in times of social distance. 

Due to current events, physical encounters are not possible. With digital media, we have adapted the International Buddy Programme (IBP) in such a way that we can still support and guide each other.

NEW: We have created a catalogue with digital offers and creative ideas of how to stay in contact with your "online-buddy". Want to try something new and creative? Then register now for the International Buddy Programme for the winter semester 2020/21! Follow us in Moodle: IBP_ Buddy Teams.
