Mentor Programme / Buddy Programme

To help you get a good start, the University of Copenhagen has a well-organised mentor/buddy network.

What is a Mentor/Buddy Programme?

The University of Copenhagen has eleven mentor/buddy programmes spread across the six faculties. The purpose of the mentor/buddy programme is to create a social network for international students and UCPH students through different types of activities during the semester. You will also be matched with a UCPH student or a group of UCPH students and other mentees. The UCPH student(s) will help you settle in during your stay in Denmark and give you an introduction to student life in Copenhagen. The programmes are run by volunteers and we expect you to participate actively in your programme.

Please note that we cannot guarantee that a mentor/buddy will be assigned to you as there are a limited number of spots. 

You must indicate in your application for admission that you would like to be a part of a mentor/buddy programme. It is the local mentor coordinator at the departments who is in charge of the mentor coordination. They will contact you close to your study start.

Please note students matched under the Faculty of Science will also have to fill out an additional form. You will receive an e-mail about it.

Erasmus Student Network (ESN)

During the semester, the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) organises social events for international students. The events give you an opportunity to socialise with both Danish and other international students.
