About the programme

The Umoja Buddy Programme seeks to ensure the smooth transition and integration of international students into the student life at UFS; help them integrate into the campus and local communities.
The programme aims to connect international and local students through meaningful lifelong friendships and foster their academic, social and cultural integration at UFS.
Designed to enhance the international and intercultural competencies of the UFS students, the programme pairs first entering international students with current UFS students that provide a warm welcoming friendly face, helping hand and a first UFS friendship that makes a world of difference for the new arrivals.
The programme adopts the UFS vision whereby every student will in the future have an international experience during UFS studies through internationalisation at home.
