The Buddy program is an opportunity for you to get to know local students, to experience Norwegian culture and to enrich your stay here in Bergen. The many events ESN and ESN Buddy have in store will surely make your semester a fun and busy one!
NB. Every semester, we receive a huge amount of applications from international students interested in joining the Buddy program. Thus, getting a local Buddy is in high demand; if you're not interested in meeting up with a local Buddy, please do not sign up so as not to to take available spots from other international students. Thank you!
In a Buddy Pair, you are matched up with one local student. In the registration sheet, you will be filling out an anonymous profile description and your interests. The local students can then pick you as their Buddy based on the profile description.
NB! Make sure you type in your e-mail correctly!

For those that thrive more in a group setting, Buddy Bergen offers an alternative option, the Buddy Group. In the Buddy Group, you are put together in a group with several other local and international students.
