Students of higher semesters accompany freshmen into the adventure of studies

First-year students receive important tips from students from higher semesters &, benefit from the experience of the "buddies" and have the opportunity to meet new people. Buddies help students get started in their studies!

Buddys are students from the 3rd semester who have already taken the first big hurdle into their studies, have already gained important experience and want to pass this experience on to first-year students.

I want to become a Buddy!

You fill out your registration form and hand it in at the dean's office. We will invite you to a preparatory workshop. Shortly before the start of the semester, we will assign you to a group, which will accompany you during the Ersti events until the first mentor meeting - together with the respective professors*. A total of 2-3 meetings will take place after the introductory event. At the end of the program we would like to have a small final report.
You will receive 2 credits in the area of key competencies.
