Buddy program

WHAT IS THE BUDDY PROGRAM?

It is a program developed by the International Relations Office, in order to help exchange students to integrate socially and academically at the University Miguel Hernández.

OBJECTIVE

The main intention with this programme is to secure that all new international students receive help and feedback by students at Miguel Hernández University, before, during and after they have settled in Spain. Another positive side to the Buddy Program is that it gives you (Spanish students or continuing international students) the opportunity to meet new people and to help them explore the city, the opportunity to make new friends and help them with everything that you had to discover when you moved here. This can also be a great opportunity to practice languages.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE SPONSORSHIP?

- Integration of exchange students at the university.

- To help exchange students adjust to the Spanish social and academic life.

- Enrichment of foreign language proficiency by both.

- Meeting new people from different countries, their language, their customs, their culture.
