Each one reach one: UniBuddies for a term

The UniBuddy programme helps international staff get settled at the University of Helsinki and meet new people. The programme is geared to not only University researchers, doctoral students and other staff, but also includes their spouses. 
 
Voluntary university staff members act as UniBuddies. The UniBuddy activities are informal and may include having coffee or lunch together, walking around campus, or participating in a free event in the city.

UniBuddy experiences

 
“I applied to the programme because I like meeting new people. I thought it might be nice to get acquainted with someone new who works at the University.”
 
“The UniBuddy programme helps international staff integrate into Finnish society. They learn how things work in Finland when they can easily talk to someone they know who also knows the University of Helsinki as an employer.”
 
“I warmly recommend the programme to all University staff! It has been an amazing experience for me and I have learned a lot.”
