Volunteers for Incluusion Buddy Program

Are you a student at the UU and would you like to contribute to the academic integration of refugee students and meet interesting people from different backgrounds? You can then sign up to volunteer as a Buddy!

Incluusion offers to refugee and asylum seekers students the chance to enroll in UU courses for free (see Incluusion for more info). We have launched the Buddy Support System to help students get used to everyday life at Utrecht University. As a buddy, you can for example support them with navigating the UU platforms and locations, give them study tips, help them in building a social network, do fun activities together and of course take part in social events organized by Incluusion.

Participation is on a voluntary basis and you will be required to commit for around 2 hours per week. If this sounds like something you would like, you can easily apply through the form on the page: Get involved in Incluusion as a student. Below on the page, you can check important dates to note down. You can also contact incluusion-buddy@uu.nl if you have any questions.
