BEST has established a buddy program to promote the cultural exchange between local and international students and to guarantee an easy and comfortable start into the program for our guests from all over the world.
Each BEST student will be assigned to a Duisburg buddy who will get in touch with you long before the actual program starts. Most buddies are willing to meet you at Duisburg main station; some are even kind enough to pick them up at the airport on their day of arrival.
On the first day they will guide you to the hotel and show you around. There is also a big welcome barbeque during the orientation week. BEST students have appreciated this feature very much so far and most buddies became friends and are still in touch!
