CU Buddy Programme

In addition to the assistance provided by the International Office during the Orientation Programme, the new incoming international students have an opportunity to get a BUDDY - a local student who can meet them on their arrival, accompany them to their accommodation, help you get familiarised with life in Prague, answer various questions regarding your stay in the Czech Republic in general etc.

Organised by ESN CU Prague, the Buddy Programme aims to link international and home students by providing exchange students with a helping hand for an easier start to your stay, while also giving Czech students an opportunity to practise a foreign language and meet new people.
