Buddy System aka Mentoring

To improve contact between incoming students and local students, we introduced a buddy system.

A local buddy is a local student who will meet you upon arrival, show you around and help you in case of troubles. Even if you are sure you can get along quite well by yourself, having a local buddy will give you an easy introduction to Switzerland.

To be assigned a local buddy all you have to do is fill out the form below and press Submit.

Please sign up at least two weeks prior to the begin of the lectures. If you apply later, we cannot guarantee you a buddy.

Please be aware that local buddies are assigned for a semester. If you do summerschool or an intern during holidays please contact us on We will get in touch with you.
