With the PIASTA Welcome Buddy Program, we'd like to warmly welcome all international students to Universität Hamburg.
Whether you're in Hamburg for just one or two semesters or if you're doing your whole degree program here, a Universität Hamburg welcome buddy can help you navigate the start of your studies. Welcome buddies are higher-semester students who already know their way around the University and enjoy meeting people from all over the world.
You and your welcome buddy will be in regular contact and will get to know each other. Welcome buddies not only help you find your feet more quickly at the University and in the city of Hamburg, but also help with bureaucratic affairs concerning the start of your studies.
On our website, you will find lots of additional information and how to contact the PIASTA buddy team.
