Each term, the International Relations Center at the WiSo Faculty (ZIB WiSo) and the PIM & CEMS Student and Alumni Club Cologne e. V. oorganise 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.

This fall we expect the majority of our incomings to arrive in Cologne in late August/late September. 

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
  • Demonstrate social commitment during your studies
  • Receive first-hand information about partner universities as optimal preparation for an exchange term

Upon request, we will be happy to issue a letter of acknowledgement covering your support and social commitment.
