At the beginning of each semester new international students are introduced to Buddies – a local student or a senior international student or groups of local and/or international students who take responsibility for introducing the University of Zimbabwe, the city of Harare and Zimbabwe in general to the new international students. By joining the buddy programme, you quickly get to know other students, make friends and settle in. What kind of help can you expect from the buddy programme?
- A meet and greet upon arrival
- Assistance with the registration process
- A tour of the campus facilities, faculties and the city
- A question and answer session where your queries may be answered about, e.g. life at the University, public transport, shopping facilities in and around the University and the City.
The University also arranges a special events programme for international students such as tour of tourist attractions, film evenings and the monthly international Coffee Hour
