Buddy Programme celebrates 20 years - Jubilee and Alumni weekend

Time Friday 18 October until Saturday 19 October, 2019 at 18:00 - 20:00
Place Campus Umeå

It has been 20 years since the International Office started the Buddy Programme at Umeå University - a multicultural community now engaging hundreds of international and domestic students, taking part in a wide variety of social activities and exploring Swedish culture and traditions.

Were you part of the Buddy Programme during your studies? Come celebrate with us on Friday 18th and/or Saturday 19th October! We have planned a jubilee weekend with typical Buddy Programme activities, and  can also promise that there will be several former Buddy Coordinators participating.

To join, sign up no later than 10 October: (sign up closed). 

Who can join?

Anyone that has previously participated in the Buddy Programme, including both Swedish and International students. Registration is only for alumni of the Buddy Programme.

If you are currently active in the Buddy Programme, then you are already invited! Instead, please visit the BP Facebook page for more information. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the current Buddy Programme coordinator, Andrew Nesbit.
