Within the Student Buddy program WIR – Weingarten International Relationships, German and experienced international students of Hochschule Ravensburg-Weingarten voluntarily support international students, in particular at the beginning of their stay at HRW.
The support comprises the following activities:
• Answering questions which future students might have before their arrival
• Picking up the newcomers at the train station in Ravensburg;
• Helping them find their way at university and in town;
• Assisting them in the organization of their everyday life (as a student);
• Accompanying latecomers to public authorities;
• Providing support with the registration for courses and/or exams and with the re-registration for the next semester.

If you would like to be a buddy, you must:
• be enrolled at HRW at least in your second semester;
• be able to communicate well in English;
• be available in Weingarten before the beginning of the lecture period;
