Buddy Program

In the upcoming months, Tilburg University is initiating a new buddy program to help welcome and help newcomers feel at home in Tilburg. The process has been designed to support newcomers in broadening their understanding of the Dutch culture, widening their professional and social network and becoming more familiar with the city of Tilburg. A Buddy program will be a great tool to accelerate the newcomer’s ability to deal with questions, issues and concerns.

A buddy is someone who partners with a newcomer to Tilburg and/or Tilburg University during the initial period of adjustment after arrival. While primarily responsible for offering advice and guidance, the buddy may also offer encouragement and knowledge resources, as they help introduce the newcomer to the social and professional culture of the Netherlands.

The role of a buddy is important, and potentially critical, to the integration and well-being of a newcomer. While the newcomer adapts to a new country, town and work environment, a buddy may be an invaluable resource to helping pave the way to a smoother transition process.

TIC would like to support Tilburg University in their effort to assist newcomers by encouraging members of TIC to become a buddy. To learn more about the buddy program and becoming a buddy, please contact:
