Through the Buddy Programme, you will get to know students who have been in Münster for a longer period of time. The Münster buddies will help you settle in, can speak German with you or spend time together doing leisure activities. Even if you are still in your home country and may not come to Germany until the next semester, you are welcome to participate! If you would like to join in, register here.
