Become an international mentor/buddy

Help international students get the best start at the University of Copenhagen.

Would you like to help international students settle in, participate in social events, have fun, learn a lot and practice intercultural and language skills?

Every semester, the faculties of UCPH welcome hundreds of international students. Not only do these students face the challenges of entering a new university, they also face the challenges of dealing with a new culture and society.

The mentor/buddy programmes of UCPH are volunteer-based student support programmes designed to provide assistance to incoming international students in order to make them feel welcome and safe when they first arrive in Copenhagen. It is also a great opportunity to get an international network and new skills.

As a mentor/buddy, you will join the mentor progamme at your faculty, as well as being invited for education days and social events with students from all of UCPH.

Discounts at Studenterhuset
