When you arrive to Jönköping University you will notice one specific thing, every other student on campus speaks another language than Swedish. Jönköping University is truly international!
Students from all over the world study at Jönköping University. Every tenth student, 1500 in total, have travelled across the world to Jönköping.
The Jönköping Student Union works specifically with the goal of increasing integration between international and Swedish students.
The Buddy Program and the Culture Exchange for families and students Program aim to provide international students with an understanding and experience of the Swedish society and culture. Signing up to these programs, will give you the opportunity to meet many new friends!
If you are an incoming international student, you can apply to get a Buddy. A Buddy is a current student at the University who can help you to adjust to the student life in Jönköping and help you with questions even before your arrival to Jönköping.
Are you a current student at Jönköping University or in Eksjö and want to become a Buddy for an international student soon arriving to Jönköping? Maybe you remember how you felt coming to a totally different country with a new language? Now you have the chance to help a fellow student so that she/ he won´t feel the same.
Being a Buddy to a student won´t take a lot of your time. You will be a helping hand to the new students, showing them around campus and Jönköping as well as telling her/ him about the student life.
The Culture Exchange for families and Students Program aims to provide international students with a deeper insight and understanding of the Swedish culture and lifestyle of a Swedish family.
By participating in the program, the family and the student will be able to get to know each other and exchange experiences and culture. The family will provide the student with a social network, not accommodation.
