Going abroad, living in a new city, attending a new university and having - maybe - to deal with a new language can seem a bit daunting and overwhelming. We understand this and that's why we set up a buddy system.

All of our Buddies are local volunteers and many of them have been abroad as exchange students themselves. However, as they are volunteers, we cannot guarantee that we will find a suitable Buddy for every exchange student, but we will try our best! The Buddy will be there to answer your questions, help you finding your way around Basel as well as our university and give you "insider tips" on life in Basel.

How does it work?
Simply click on this link and fill out the form. Once you have filled it out, you will be put onto our list and we will then match you with a suitable Buddy. The "big" matching will take place as early as possible before the semester begins.

If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact us via the contact form on our website.

We wish you a good start in Basel and can't wait to meet you!
