To help prospective students from refugee backgrounds get started in everyday life at the university, Freie Universität Berlin has launched a buddy program. The program gives students and employees of Freie Universität various ways to help, whether as conversation partners for those learning the language, by explaining how the study programs in a certain subject are structured, by giving a guided tour of the campus and university institutions such as the libraries, or by helping them with applications and navigating bureaucratic hurdles.

Members of the university community who are interested in helping with this program can use an online form to sign up for the database that is used to match volunteers with refugees.
