- Assistance in achieving the scientific standard of written work (proofreading if necessary)

Participation in the Buddy Programme
The participation in the Buddy Programme is voluntary and therefore free of charge. However, we would be happy to provide you with a certificate of your voluntary commitment within the academic environment. This could reflect positively in internal scholarship applications.
How much time you spend with visiting students varies from case to case. As a general rule, the amount of supervision is greatest at the beginning and end of the semester, as this is when most questions and problems arise. If you get along well with your assigned guest student, you can of course share your free time with him/her in addition to regular academic support.
In order to apply to the buddy program, please contact the International Office.
