If you are an exchange student who will soon arrive to Barcelona, you may be interested in the Buddy Program organized by ESN Barcelona UPF!

As an international student you arrive to a new country, where you have little knowledge about the local community and its lifestyle. As Barcelona can be quite challenging when you get there, ESN Barcelona UPF has established the Buddy Program to give you a head start.

In this program, a group of foreign students are assigned to a spanish one (who has already applied for it voluntarily), in order to make the beginning of your exchange experience much easier! The aim of the program is that you can have someone you can count on, and ask him all about Barcelona and Pompeu Fabra university at the beginning of your stay. This way you, the International students, will already have a personal contact even before you get to the new city.

If you want to meet a native student even before you arrive to Spain, if you want to meet someone who will be keen to help you to better understand Barcelona and its lifestyle... This is your program!!! Sign in and get a Buddy!!!

If you want to learn more you can also send us an email:  buddy.program@esnupf.edu
