Who are buddies?

Most of the buddies are students. Some of them work already or participate in other activities. But there’s one thing they all have in common - they take care of Erasmus students.

Their major task is to make foreign students feel comfortable in the Czech Republic, help them with anything they need and organize events for them.

How does it work?

Buddies contact foreign students to arrange details about the arrival. They help students to get to Hradec Králové and to accommodate, paperwork to show them the town and the university. If needed, they help them to paperwork as well as visas administration. They’re simply here to help students with everything and anything to make their arrival and stay easy. In the evening they are usually going to the bar/pub and talking, drinking etc. There is nothing compulsory - they are doing what they want to do.

They’re not called buddies just by chance. The word “buddy” means “friend,” and that’s what they actually are. Apart from the administration, buddies organize for foreign students many parties, trips and other events. The first of them is Orientation week (usually held during the first week of a semester) focused on introducing the Czech Republic to the foreigners together with getting to know each other. Students will do some sightseeing tours in Hradec as well as in Prague, have an international dinner together and there are also two thematic parties. Sounds tempting, doesn’t it? And that’s only the beginning! Other popular events are for example Survival weekend, language evenings, Pub Crawl and many many other parties and trips.

In other words, there is no way to be bored with ESN Buddy System HK!
