Buddy Program

We are happy to welcome you to UCLy for the new academic year and we hope that your time here will exceed your expectations! In order to get you started in the swing of things we have organized an international student Buddy Program for you. 

What is it?
The Buddy Program helps international students to overcome language barriers, cultural differences and establishs social contacts while offering both, international and French students, an opportunity to experience a multi-cultural and multi-lingual university enviroment. French students interested in language- and cultural exchange will be paired with an incoming international student and guide them upon arrival, settle into life in Lyon and at UCLy.

You and your Buddy are also welcome to all Pôle International's events throughout the year !

Who can participate?
All international students enrolled in courses at UCLy. Participation in the program is on a first come, first serve basis so sign up fast!
