The Buddy System organization offers you a great opportunity to be paired up with a Czech student who will help you settle in a new environment. We call this a “Buddy Program”. The Czech student will be your “Buddy” – a friend who will make your arrival and first days in Prague easy and smooth and who will be there to help you during the whole semester. At the same time, you will be his/her Buddy too!
The most important is using BuddyIS. Your account should be prepared for you so DO NOT create a new because then you WILL NOT be able to apply for buddy. If you can’t find any email from us, check other possible email accounts and SPAM folders. You can register for Buddy filling in form, where we ask you for PREFERENCE to YOUR BUDDY (such as time to spent, how often you want to travel, gender etc.
We prepared big and very useful student handbook prepared by Czech students for international students that are coming to study to the Czech Republic. Find out how to save some money with the ESN card. How to register your visa in the Czech Republic. Brief instructions for beginning of your stay in the Czech Republic, definitely good to know and you shouldn’t skip them.
You will get your Buddy’s contact information in an email from Buddy System coordinator about a month before the semester starts. Before that, do not worry about a thing. Stay in touch with your Buddy! Also, stay in touch with the Buddy System organization 🙂 We organize lots of fun events for you. At the end of semester, we will ask you for your valuable feedback!
