About the Buddy Program

The Student Buddy Program provides new international students a helping hand at Université Laval. It helps them adapt to the university community during the first few weeks of the semester.

It is also designed to raise awareness among Université Laval students about other cultures and expose them to cross-cultural experiences.

The program is for new international students and students already attending the university (buddies).

Prospective buddies are asked to attend an Student Buddy training session before participating in the program.
