Do you want to become friends with international students here at RISEBA? Then this is your chance! Become a "student buddy" for Erasmus students! 

Soon new ERASMUS and international exchange students will come to Latvia to study at RISEBA. Students will arrive from different parts of Europe such as Slovakia, France, Germany, Austria, Portugal, Spain, and others, as well as from the other parts of the world.

Main task of a "student buddy":

  • to help the new students to adapt to our university and society in general;
  • introduce them to Latvia, Riga and help with practical matters;
  • suggest best entertainment, leisure and event sites;
  • if possible, meet them at the airport or bus station and help to get to their apartment;
  • help them with other daily life issues such as opening a Latvian bank account, carrier plan, bus pass etc.;
  • party and have fun together.

It is a great opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and try something new, improve your English (and language skills in general), exchange with experience, gain new intercultural experience and make friends for a life time.
