Make a difference! Become a buddy for refugee students

InclUUsion is a a project which offers students with a refugee background the opportunity to participate in courses offered by Utrecht University. We are looking for Master students that are willing to get involved in the ‘buddy system’. This system contributes to the integration of refugee students by helping them getting used to everyday life at Utrecht University. As a buddy you would be matched with an InclUUsion student to help her/him.

Your participation would involve activities such as:

  • Guided tour through university facilities (faculty, library…)
  • Explain how bachelor programs are structured and support learning process (help with writing assignments and how to deal with course literature)
  • Assist in the use of Blackboard and ‘My Timetable’.

This would only take up to between 2-4h a week, for at least one block. In return,  you might get new experiences, new perspectives and who knows, and maybe even a new friend.
