The Buddy System project is supported by an Erasmus+ Key Action 2 Higher Education fund between Sept 2017 and May 2020. In the horizon 2020, it will allow universities and student associations acting in the field of welcoming international
students to organize a massive and qualitative buddy system at the european scale
At the end of the European program, the BuddySystem will be effective in about 30 European countries and around 300.000 students are expected to subscribe on the platform. Thus, the project will reach a large number of students while favoring a quality welcome since it allows international students to receive an unique guidance: personalised and customised to their needs.
Among international mobility projects and tools, this platform will remain an essential tool, since the layout of the BuddySystem will result from the cooperative work of universities and associations welcoming international students. Awaited by several structures welcoming international students, that project will shortly be spread in Europe. To do so, ESN France can count on its network which includes close to 550 pan-European associations and thanks to its partners with their 700 universities network.
