Buddy System

The Buddy System is a voluntary peer support scheme that pairs up a new international student with a second, third+ URCA student to help with the transition into French life and provide support during the initial administrative procedures (opening a bank account, buying a SIM card, insurance etc.).

Buddy Family

Many international students (Exchange and Non-exchange students) spend several months or even years in France without ever visiting or meeting a French or local family.
In order to alleviate the difficulties of integration and to deepen the knowledge of the French culture, the Univesrity of Reims Champagne-Ardenne would like to call upon local families to welcome an international student for a lunch, a dinner or a family outing (snacks, walks, outings). This short but concrete immersion will create a link between local and international audiences.

The local family is the driving force behind the programme and the shape of the meetings.
Via an enrolment questionnaire, the candidate families will be able to detail their motivations. The DREDI will make an inventory of the registrations and will proceed with the "matching" of the families with the students according to the coherence of the respective expectations.
