The Buddy Program brings international freshmen and students of Jade University into cultural, linguistic and fun exchange. 

In a one-day workshop, we prepare Local Buddies interculturally and in terms of content for their task. They receive a certificate for their commitment. In the MIT department in the corresponding courses of study as long as valid, a special study point can be awarded for the Buddy Program and a Social Credit Point can be earned at the Elsfleth location.

Local Buddy

Local Buddy [/ˈlōkəl ˈbʌdi/, male, female, diverse], offers international students friendly support for integration at the university location.

International Buddy

International Buddy [/intərˈnashnəl ˈbʌdi/, male, female, diverse], seeks help and support with integration at the university site.

If you would like to become a JADE-BUDDY, please register via our registration form. We will then send you more information around the Buddy program in the coming weeks.



The Jade-Buddy-Program is funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
