BuddyGoDutch helps international students meet Dutch people and vice versa. We provide a personal buddy program for Dutch students and international students from all over the globe. This way both parties can learn about each other’s culture!
Our buddy program
If you are an international student in Utrecht looking for a friend or a Dutch student looking to become friends with an international. You can sign up for the program at the beginning of every semester. After signing up, we host a Matching Event where you can meet the others who applied. We will use your personal interests and preferences to match you with your ideal buddy. For more info about the program, visit our matching process page here.
Activities and events
Once you are matched you can attend our biweekly events together with your buddy. Here you will meet other students both international and Dutch. It is the perfect environment to discuss culture, politics, traditions, all the while practicing languages and customs that might be very foreign to you! You are free to meet up with your buddy in your own time!
We organize activities ranging from pub crawls and ice skating to dinners and parties. Here is the link to our activities calendar.
