Become a Buddy

Written by: Student Bergen


Want to help a new international student get to know Bergen? Students who have lived in Norway for at least one semester are welcome to become a Buddy.

Every year more than 1,000 international students from around the world come to Bergen, and Buddy scheme operated by ESN Bergen helps them to enjoy their stay here. As Buddy you will meet exiting people and get to know different cultures - and perhaps learn a new language? Buddy Bergen matches students based on shared interests and study area.

Both Norwegian students, international students who have lived in Norway for at least one semester and others who are not students (requires approval) can become a Buddy. It will be up to each buddy pairs to plan activities and when to meet, but ESN expects you meet your Buddy at least four times during the semester

ESN Bergen hosts a series of Buddy events every semester, for example Eurovision Party, Bonfire-party, Pumpkin decoration and Mountain Hike.

You do not need any previous experience for becoming a Buddy.
