The registration for our popular ISN Buddy programme is now open! You can sign up and find more information H E R E. The first few weeks in a foreign country are often the most challenging. You've yet to get used to your new surroundings, as well as the local customs, and way of life in Germany.This is where the buddy programme comes in! We will pair you up with a local student (click here if you are a local student). He or she will then be your buddy, and will help you settle into Bayreuth. Your buddy may, for example, show you around town, show you how to get the best out of student life in Bayreuth, or help you to get organised during your first few weeks
