Dear international students coming to VŠH v Praze,

VŠH in Prague offers you a possibility to request a local buddy before you arrive to Prague.


What is the Buddy Programme?

The Buddy Programme is about connecting Czech student-volunteers with incoming international students in order to provide you, the international students, a helping hand at the beginning of your stay and giving the Czech students an opportunity to practice a foreign language and to meet students from abroad.


How can a Buddy help me?

Your buddy should be there for you to answer any questions you might have regarding your studies or your stay in Prague. He/she should pick you up the airport/train station or at least explain how the public transportation works. Your buddy should give you some tips on where to go and what to see in the first days. After that, it is all up to you, but the Buddy Programme is known for making great friendships happen!


How can I get a Buddy?

To get a Buddy, you need to register for our Buddy Programme at: https://vsh.uni-buddy.com/register/international

We highly recommend writing something about yourself in the registration form as it increases your chances of getting a local buddy. You can view your profile and make changes anytime you want. When a local buddy volunteers to help you, you will receive an email with his/her contact information. You should contact one another as soon as possible. Sometimes, the selection process takes a while. The sooner you sign up, the higher chances you have to get a buddy before your arrival.
