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.

Close to your study start you will be invited to join one or more mentor/buddy programmes.

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

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.
