4.       Useful information

    Erasmus Student Network is a volunteer student organisation in international higher education in Europe. The organisation offers opportunities for cultural understanding and self-development under the principle of SHS - "Students Helping Students." One of the main activities of ESN USB Budweis is a "Buddy System". After your arrival you can feel totally lost, you may not know how to get to České Budějovice, how to get to the dormitories. Maybe you have some doubts about what the Orientation week is. That's why there is your Czech buddy – a friend who will make your arrival and first days in České Budějovice easier and less stressful. 

    Your buddy can:      

    • Tell you how to get from Prague's airport to České Budějovice
    • Pick you up at the bus/train station here in České Budějovice
    • Take you to the dormitories and help you to fill in the documents there
    • Take you to the school during Orientation Week
    • Give you basic orientation in the city, at school, explain public transportation system, shopping
    • Explain where to find the best places to have a fun
    • Help you during the semester with anything you need

    If you are interested in having a buddy, please, as soon as you receive the Letter of Acceptance, register in the buddy system here.
