New name, same idea - the program “Host Families”, which was created in 2010, gave rise to the buddy program. As before, the main aim is to create direct contacts between students from all over the world and Bielefeld citizens and to promote intercultural relationships. For this to succeed, we need you!
All international students of the University of Bielefeld and the University of Applied Sciences Bielefeld, as well as international scientists working there, can apply for the program. Also, we are looking for families, couples and a single person with or without children, who are interested in regular meetings and an intercultural exchange.
The answer is quite simple:
- You will give international students the opportunity to get to learn more about Bielefeld life and the people of the city.
- The active exchange with international students allows you to take an insight look in unknown culture and to widen your horizon.
- The project creates contacts from which good friendships can develop. So, why not profit from it?
We would like to point out that the project has no political or religious intentions.
