About life at RUC

Buddy programme

The Buddy Programme is a face-to-face introduction to Denmark, facilitated by current students at Roskilde University, giving you an informal introduction to student life at the University. The Buddy Programme will also host common social events for all international and local buddies throughout the semester.

Register before semester start and we will pair you with a local buddy in a small buddy group, so you will have a friend from day one. Somebody who will help you around campus, and also somebody to go for dinner, lunch, parties and all sort of things with. Also, many fun activities will be arranged by Roskilde University, exclusively for the Buddy Programme.

Due to COVID19 the Buddy Programme runs many of its events digitally in order to follow RUC’s regulations. Since the buddy groups are small, it may still be possible for the separate groups to meet.
