Would you like to have a Buddy Family when you arrive in Wageningen? You will then be placed in a group of 10-15 other internationals and 2-3 Buddy Mentors. It is a nice way to quickly make friends and do nice activities together.

If you are here for your Internship or starting your Master you can also join!

Before you can join the Buddy Program, you have to subscribe as an ESN member. You can do this by coming to our office during office hours, or subscribe via the website. 

If you will join the Summer AID:

  1. You can continue with your AID family as a Buddy Family if your AID Mentors will become Buddy Mentors. Ask your mentors about it! If they will continue, the Integration Coordinator will register you automatically and will contact you!

  2. When your AID Mentors do not want to become Buddy Mentors, you can get new Buddy Mentors. You will receive an email from the Integration Coordinator if this happens with the question if you want to take part in the program. If you have any questions about this, send an email to integration@esn-wageningen.nl.

  3. If you do not want to continue with your group for some reason, you can get placed into a new Buddy Family. Send the Integration Coordinator an email about this, and we will take care of it!

If you will not join the Summer AID:

  • You will be placed in a Buddy Family when you fill in the form on the bottom of this page!

  • Together with your Buddy Family you have the possibility to try out the program for one week. After this week, you can decide if you want to continue together with your family. 

The benefits of the Buddy Program:

  • You will meet many people and make a lot of new friends

  • You will easily integrate in the Wageningen student life

  • Your Buddy Family will get support from ESN through activities and actions especially for you!

  • You will be part of a network of other Buddy Families through Wageningen
