International mentoring: Buddy Programme

Buddy Programme 2021/2022
The Buddy programme is a free international mentoring program for international students who have recently arrived at Paris-Saclay university for their studies.
The goal of the program is to help international students to settle and integrate well on our campus and more generally in France.

Registrations for the 2021 - 2022 Buddy Programme are now open! 

You are an international student or doctoral candidate enrolled at ENS Paris-Saclay or in an exchange programme? You want to meet local students, receive guidance upon your arrival and discover the French way of life?

Be mentored by a local student of PhD candidate! Thanks to the Buddy Programme, each international student is matched with a local student, who can: 

  • Show you around
  • Share local tips 
  • Make you discover the French way of life
  • Support you in your administrative procedures

The Buddies will have the occasion to meet during cultural or sports events organised by Université Paris-Saclay. Visits of Paris and intercultural trainings are organised all year long! You can get new friends with the Buddy Programme!
