Erasmus+ Buddy exchange program


Faculty of Tourism organizes a program called BEP – »Buddy Exchange Program« to welcome the Erasmus+ students. The program is carried out by our students, who help foreigners visiting Slovenia or Brežice for the first time with the language and orientation in the local environment.

International students receive a contact of their faculty buddy before the exchange, so they can connect before the student arrives in Slovenia. Next, the student »buddy's« task is to help Erasmus+ student with everyday problems (e.g. public transportation, telecommunications, subsidized student meals …) or with the study process (information on the course, study materials, lecturers …). However, we encourage the students to socialize, and the student »buddy's« role is to help Erasmus+ student meet other students of the Faculty of Tourism.
