Buddy Program 21-22 Banner

The Buddy Program, carried out by the UMA International Hub, aims to integrate foreign students into university life in Malaga. It provides one-to-one support to international exchange students through the assignment of pairs of students (l-Buddy + e-Buddy).

Each international exchange student, e-Buddy, is assigned an l-Buddy, who is a local student of the University of Malaga. The l-Buddy will introduce you to the city lifestyle and integrate you into the UMA community. As well as, trying to solve any doubts you may have before your arrival in Malaga and with your transition to life as an exchange student.
