Friend Family Programme
We have run the Friend Family Programme since 2010.
The aims of the Friend Family Programme are to:
- bring together international students and local families
- enable participants to develop their language and intercultural communication skills
- offer students and families an opportunity to broaden their perspectives by learning from each other’s cultures
- in the best case scenario, enable unforgettable experiences and long-lasting friendships.
The programme lasts eleven months, February – December annually.
The universities will organise two joint meetings where families and students can all get together and join a forest trip or a sauna evening. Other activities will be individually agreed upon between families and students themselves.
