Internationalization at home

At Linnaeus University we offer international possibilities already at home.

Become a buddy to an international student

New international students who are about to start their studies at Linnaeus University can be matched with local students through the Buddy program. This is a way to integrate international students into the studies and the local student life. The program also helps international students to get a good start in their new home country. 

As a buddy you get to know another culture, help another student, practice languages and learn new things. You will also get to meet new interesting people and maybe you will also be inspired to study or work abroad in the future. 

Please find more information about the Buddy program in Linnaeus Union's website. You can also apply directly at
