Buddy Program of the Faculty of Mechanics and Electronics

What is the Buddy Program?

Every semester, exchange students (Incomings) come to Heilbronn University and plunge into the unknown adventure of a semester abroad - with many new challenges, be it integration in a foreign country, culture or language barrier.

In order to give our international students a good start into student life, we provide them with a buddy to help them with an intercultural exchange.

The buddy is a reliable contact person and supports the incoming students with student and private matters during the semester.
