Buddy System

Bucerius Buddies

The Bucerius Buddy System pairs international Master students with program alumni, Bucerius students or Bucerius staff. Buddies are volunteers who are there to help new students make a smooth transition to life in Hamburg and to get settled in.

In order to bring non-Germans and Germans together, the LLM/MLB Program organizes a "buddy system" that pairs international LLM/MLB students with MLB alumni and Bucerius students or staff.

A German buddy may be a helpful resource when there are questions about German culture, language and daily life in Germany. It may also be a nice opportunity to get to know German family and social life.



“The buddy system is a great tool to bring the international MLBs together with the German culture. We both benefited from our language differences: I practiced my German and he his Spanish. I am fortunate to say that my buddy became an unconditional friend.
