In particular, we will

- support you in understanding and responding to important official documents or letters
- accompany you to relevant appointments
- give guidance in methodological matters such as preparing presentations for your courses, structuring papers, etc.
There is one of us at nearly every faculty/ institute, ready to welcome you. Please contact your buddy to get more information. We speak German and English, and some of us also speak Spanish, French or other languages.
