Buddy Program

For most of the IMPRS-TRUST students from all over the world coming to Germany, it is their first stay abroad in a sometimes very unfamiliar environment. We want you to feel at home as quickly as possible, so when you arrive at the institute we help you to become familiar with your new surroundings. For the first weeks, we provide accommodation and with the help of so-called buddies (“old” IMPRS-TRUST students who wish to give the new students a warm welcome), we guide you through your daily problems, like finding a flat, extending your visas, etc.
