    Become a buddy

    20% of students at the VUB are international students. When they arrive in Brussels, they can feel a bit lost in a different culture, not knowing anyone. For this reason ESN VUB EhB Brussels together with the VUB has set up a buddy programme. A system where VUB students become buddies to new international students to help them get settled in Brussels. 


    Are you social and helpful? Do you enjoy meeting new people, or do you want a chance to practice a foreign language? Do you want to make friends with a different cultural background and travel all over the world to visit them? BECOME A BUDDY! 


    Apply before September 1st  if you are a student at VUB or EhB and willing to spend some of your time to help international students.

    If you join at least 3 Buddy activities, you can request a Buddy certificate.
