Buddy Program C3IS

Buddy Meeting Point 2020


The C3IS buddy program offers international students the possibility of having the support of a UC3M student even before their arrival, thus facilitating their academic and social integration at UC3M.

The student will be accompanied and tutored throughout their stay by their assigned "buddy", which will allow them to practice the language and a full cultural and social immersion from the moment they arrive, thus allowing them to quickly and easily integrate into the group of Spanish and international students.


(only for students of the International School's programs: Free Mover Program, CEH and SAP)

      UC3M Buddy. María Revert

      María Revert Calabuig – UC3M Buddy

      "My name is María Revert Calabuig. I am 19 years old and I am a student at UC3M of the double degree in Law and Economics. I was born in Valencia, but since last year I live in Madrid. Last year I had the opportunity to tutor 5 buddies from different countries: Peru, Mexico, Italy, Switzerland and Germany.

      The experience was a great success, I got to know their culture, interests and we were able to discuss about each perspective of the world. Undoubtedly, the best thing has been to feel that I can help them, both academically and to guide them in the administrative procedures that are usually so cumbersome. This experience has helped me to mature, discover new cultures and above all, I take with me a very good friend that I did not expect to meet: Francesca from Switzerland."

      UC3M Buddy. Fátima de la Calle

      Fátima de la Calle - International student

      "My name is Fátima de la Calle and I am a student at UC3M. Last year I had the opportunity to enjoy a year in Switzerland and thus, meet Régula who was then my tutor and is today my friend. The first contact I had with her was through the university, at first I did not know what a tutor could bring to my stay, but soon I understood. Throughout the year she helped me to find a place to live, to organize my courses and exams, to find the cheapest supermarkets and the chicest bars in Zurich. What I am most grateful for is the peace of mind she gave me, I knew that despite being in a new country, I was not alone, I had someone who knew the most hidden tricks of the city.

      Today I maintain a good friendship with them and the other buddies I tutored."
