The buddy program is designed for international students in Ljubljana that would like to know someone to help them with their first steps in Ljubljana, as well as during the semester. If this is your case, you’ve chosen the right place.
The ESN Ljubljana Buddy Program is one part of the services provided by ESN, which tries to make your semester abroad as joyful and exciting as possible. It wants to help exchange students to establish a social and academic network starting from day one and it will a great experience for the international and the Slovene students. The Buddy Program is designed especially to introduce Erasmus students to the city and to integrate them in the Slovenian way of life.
When you arrive your buddy will take you to see the city, the places to go out and places to go shopping etc. and can also introduce you to meet his/her Slovenian friends, introduce you to other international students, introduce you to all the ESN Ljubljana activities that will happen during the next semester. This should all be a lot of fun, and not be a burden to either one of you. All in all, the Buddy program will take about a few months, but of course it is free to continue seeing each other after that. Remember, your buddy does this voluntary, meaning that he/she likes to do all these things with you.
We wish you a lot of fun and we hope you can learn from each others cultures and languages! If there would still be questions unanswered or remarks you can always contact us.
If you are a Slovene student who is interested in other cultures and likes to help exchange students before and during their stay at Ljubljana... you also came to the right place!
