The Buddy Program is a newly started project between the University of Gävle and the Gefle Student Union. It aims to assist new exchange* students to get familiar with the city of Gävle, the University and life in Sweden. Participating in the programme provides a helping hand as you settle down and get to know student life.
A buddy is a student of the university that will be one of your main contacts before you get here and once you arrive. A buddy will show you around, help you with locating where you live, find a food store etc. Together we will also arrange social activities.
Once you have applied though our form you will be matched with a Buddy based on the criteria you have given. Unfortunately we might not be able to match everybody because the number of the exchanges students outnumbers the number of buddies, but we will do our best!
