Manage their own Buddy Programmes. Should you like to request the assistance of a local student, please contact your international tutor.
How does our Buddy Programme work?
From June to August; and from December to February, we will email you with the contact details of your assigned buddy, so that you contact them with any questions or concerns. If you haven´t requested a buddy or we haven´ t been able to assign you prior to arrival, please tick the buddy request proposition at the Help Centre
Your buddy will be waiting for you at the train or bus station in the city, so as to give you your first orientations.
Your buddy will walk you to our Help Centre office, where we will help you find a permanent accommodation; inform you on our Spanish/Basque courses; and go through student services on campus.
Your buddy will also assist you with your first academic procedures (visit to your international tutor, courses registration...)
Buddies can get credit for their volunteer work, that is why, you may be asked to confirm the tasks carried out by your buddy when assisting you upon arrival.
