Further information on the subject tutorial project is available here.


The buddy project for journalism students is targeted at students with German as a foreign language or as a second language, aiming to help them to integrate into and participate in the life of the University within the Department of Communication. Basically, therefore, the project was set up to support those students whose mother tongue is not German.
