Speedy Meetup

Dear newcomers,

We had quite a good time last “Speedy Meet Up” now we’re going for a second round. Next session is on April 9.
We know it’s not the easiest time to get to know new people and we know this means a lot to a newcomer.
But don’t worry!

Since we cannot meet up personally, we forced our creativity and organised a “speed dating” concept for you.
Well, dating doesn’t mean the dating we know already. 

So how does it work?
We let each of you to get paired up in online rooms and talk about the suggested topics for 5 minutes.
Once the time is up you’ll get a new partner and go on talking.
Don’t worry we have enough topic suggestions, you won’t get bored.
There you’ll get to know Buddies (International Buddy Program),  other newcomer students, Studienkolleg students.

To join the event please register for the “Speedy Meet Up” on ILIAS by using this link

Come over, socialise and have fun!
See you there!
Your Buddy Team
