Buddy system

Buddy System is a non-profit organization established in 1998. Buddy System helps foreign students who come for an exchange program to University of Economics, Prague by giving them a “friend – Buddy” who advises and helps them with essentials things for their stay (accommodation in dormitories, orientation in school and city etc.). Activities of organization also include trips and students activities (Orientation Week, parties).

Each of the Faculties of University of Economics, Prague has Buddies for students who arrive for an exchange program; one Buddy is for one foreign student. Being accepted to study abroad at the University of Economics, Prague will automatically make student registered for the Buddy Program and a Buddy will automatically be assigned to foreign student.

The Buddies will:

  • pick student up at the airport or bus / train station;
  • help student with the transportation to the dorms and get a room;
  • help with the paperwork at the dormitories office;
  • help student during Orientation Week;
  • help with basic orientation in the city, at school, explain public transportation system;
  • help during the entire semester, e.g. go to the doctor with student or deal with public offices;
  • help with moving out from the dorms at the end of the semester.
