Are you a foreign student accepted by the University of Chemistry and Technology Prague for the exchange? Then do not hesitate and take advantage of our Buddy Programme.

A “BUDDY” or "mentor" is a primary contact person who provides information and guidance to you during your first weeks in the Czech Republic and, if the circumstances allow, during the whole time of your stay. Our buddies are Czech students who usually have experience as exchange students abroad from the past. They will pick you up at the airport, show you the way to the Dormitories and to the University, help you to arrange your accommodation… Purely and simply, they will help you to get “started” in your new home town and provide you “inside” information about student life in Prague, the UCT Prague university and Czech culture in general.

Please, do not forget that our buddies do their “job” as volunteers (they do it from their good will). Therefore, you can not demand any assistance from them that exceeds their competence as a helping contact person.

Click “Apply now!” and fill registration form. We recommend you to submit your buddy request at least three weeks prior to your arrival.
