Study in Leipzig – buddies support international students

Dear international students,

Welcome to Leipzig University. We are a number of fellow students who can lend you a helping hand in all matters concerning studying at your faculty.

In particular, we will

  • answer your questions or assist you in finding the right person to help you
  • support you in understanding and responding to important official documents or letters
  • accompany you to relevant appointments
  • give guidance in methodological matters such as preparing presentations for your courses, structuring papers, etc.

There is one of us at nearly every faculty/ institute, ready to welcome you. Please contact your buddy to get more information. We speak German and English, and some of us also speak Spanish, French or other languages.

Looking forward to meeting you!
