The buddy program is a cooperation between Linnéstudenterna (the student union) and VIS. It is a system in which incoming international students are paired with a local student (either a Swede or an international "freemover" that has been here for a while). The local helps the international students to discover Växjö and the campus, and together they share their culture and hobby. You can read more about the buddy program from Linnéstudenterna here.

  • If you're an incoming international student, you can apply to receive a buddy here.
  • If you're a local student, you can take care of one or more buddies by signing up here.
