Start with a buddy

The first semester at university is an exciting time: new people, new surroundings, new demands. To support new students during this time, Folkwang University offers "Start with a Buddy!” 

Our buddies are more experienced who are here to help all first-year students get off to a good start. They can help you with questions about your studies (e.g. how to sign up for classes or how to create a schedule), with organisational matters (e.g. how to open a bank account, how to make an appointment with the Foreigners’ Registration Office) or with everyday questions (e.g. free time activities, job search). 

Our buddies know the challenges of starting a study course from their own experience. They can help you directly, or refer you to the right contact person. You don’t need to sign up for the "Start with a Buddy!" programme; feel free to contact the buddies with any questions or issues you may have at the beginning of your time at Folkwang University.
