Buddy programme

When arriving in the Netherlands, it can be quite a challenge to adapt to the Dutch lifestyle and culture. Therefore, ConcepT has a buddy system which helps international students feel welcome at the UT and in Enschede. A new international student will be matched to an older student (either Dutch or International) by the Board of ConcepT. Find more information about the buddy programme below:

As a new International student

Or do you want some help from an older year student? Our buddies are happy to let you feel welcome, answer your questions about everyday life in the Netherlands and in general just help to integrate in the Dutch student life. Also, you buddy can bring you to one of the activities of ConcepT. The programme has no costs. If you enroll for the Buddy Programme, you will be linked to an older (international) civil engineering student by the Board of ConcepT.
