Buddy Programme for the fall term 2020/21

For visiting students of the WiSo Faculty

Each term, the International Relations Center at the WiSo Faculty (ZIB WiSo) and the PIM and CEMS Student and Alumni Club Cologne e.V. organise a Buddy Programme for guest students from the WiSo Faculty's partner universities. At the beginning of each term, ZIB WiSo looks for students and doctoral candidates interested in mentoring guest students for that term.

Since the semester start has been postponed to 2 November 2020, we expect our incomings to ‘arrive’ in early/mid-October. Whether our guest students will be spending their exchange with us online or on-site in Cologne, they will need support and assistance – which means they need you!


Benefits of the Buddy Programme

  • Meet students from all over the world
  • Participate in the "Welcome Days"
  • Participate in a number of exciting, international social events
  • Develop your language skills
