We offer each incoming exchange student the opportunity to join a ”buddy group”, a group of 2-4 exchange students and 2-3 local students who will help the exchange students settle in and will answer any questions the exchange students may have about the city, the university or any other aspect of life in St. Gallen
We organize various social events such as our legendary fondue nights, an international dinner, pub crawls, skiing weekends and city trips during the orientation week and throughout the entire semester, where you can get to know your fellow exchangees as well as local students.
The BuddySystem offers to bring local and exchange students together to improve their language skills. A student teaches you his/her native language and in exchange you teach him/her yours. You decide when, where and how often you meet! If you would like to participate in the Tandem program in the fall semester 2019, please fill in our registration form until September 15th. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee everybody a Tandem partner as it depends on enough people with opposite language skills and interests signing up.Signup for a Tandem
This semester, we are introducing buddy groups: 2-4 exchange students will be matched with 2-3 local students as a group. Below you can sign up as a local student or as an incoming exchange student to be allocated to such as buddy group and meet new people from around the world.
