María Revert Calabuig – UC3M Buddy

"My name is María Revert Calabuig, I’m 19 years old and I am studying the Dual Degree in Law and Economics at the UC3M. I was born in Valencia, but since I started university I live in Madrid. Last year, I have had the opportunity to be the tutor of 5 international buddies coming from different countries: Peru, Mexico, Italy, Switzerland and Germany.

The experience was amazing, I got to know about their cultures, their interests, and also discuss the way we see the world. Without any doubt, the best part of it was knowing that I could help them, both with their studies and with the administrative procedures,. This experience allowed me to grow up, discover new cultures and most of all, it allowed me to make a good friends as Francesca from Switzerland."


Fátima de la Calle – International student

"My name is Fatima de la Calle and I’m studying at the UC3M. Last year, I had the opportunity to spend a year in Switzerland, which allowed me to meet Régula, my buddy. The first contact I had with her was through the university. During the year she helped me find accommodation, sort out my timetable and exams, find the cheapest supermarkets, and the best bars of Zürich. I am most thankful for the calm that she brought me: I knew that, even though I was in a different country, I wasn’t alone. 

Nowadays, I still count her as my friend, just like I do with the other colleges whom she was their buddy."
