The Buddy system is a program, which aims to help Erasmus students during their mobility. A “Buddy”  is a local student, volunteer, who decided to interact with international students and facilitate their arrival and stay in Slovakia.

All our Buddies speak English and sometimes other languages as well. Your buddy can help you with check in to your accommodation, with translation or various administrative tasks, all while being your first friend in a new city.


As an erasmus student wanting a buddy, you will be required to fill in this form, which will allow us to pair you with a buddy. Afterwards, your assigned buddy will add you to a WhatsApp group where you will be free to interact. If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask any through the current semester WhatsApp group or write directly to our buddy coordinator: stuba.buddy@esn.sk
