Buddy Program

Support for international students

To make our incoming students feel welcome from the very beginning, our local buddies support new international students at the start of their studies with questions about studying at the FH Kufstein Tirol and everyday life in Kufstein. In addition, the program also contributes to the development of new acquaintances and friendships and offers both buddies the chance to gain intercultural experience as well as improve their language skills.
