Every semester we select about 20 students (local and international) with different interests and backgrounds, coming from different faculties and with lots of creative ideas!

The ambassadors help and support the International Student Coordinators and the Student Union Events Manager during activities and events, additionally they also have the possibility to organize their own event and share their experiences as a student .

This is the perfect way to make the most out of your student period in Stockholm, meet new friends and volunteer as a part of the Student Union body. This program will also help you develop important skills for your future, such as: event planning and time management, organizational skills, leadership and teamworking abilities, experience in communication and networking.

Buddy program

Getting a buddy is probably the smartest thing you can do this semester. You make new friends, you get someone to help you with your questions and concerns, and it’s a great way to get an inside glimpse into Swedish culture. It is also a great opportunity to practice your language skills. 

If you are a member of the Student Union you can apply for the Stockholm University Student Union Buddy Program. This program is open to student from all faculties.

When you have applied to the program you will be matched up in a buddy group with 6-9 students. Each group will contain 2-4 Local/Swedish buddies and 4-6 international students. The International Student Coordinators will try to match you up with other students based on language preference, hobbies etc.

When you have been assigned a buddy group it is up to you and your group to decide what you want to do together and how often you want to meet. It is important that you show your initiative in getting to know your buddy-team members during the activities you have together. At the beginning of each semester, we organize one common buddy program mingle for all the newly formed buddy groups.

Due to the high number of international applicants and the aim of providing the best buddy group experience and quality to international students during this program, we are not always able to assign a buddy group to every international student. Thus, every student enrolled in the buddy program will be contacted latest a week after the application deadline. However, in case you did not get a buddy group by that time, you are still on our waiting list and might be enrolled if somebody from international students drops out. 

The application period close the 3rd of September 2017.
