UNMO Buddy System was created to make the stay of our incoming students more fun and enjoyable. UNMO takes every opportunity to create an atmosphere where students will feel safe to cross the border of average and step into the wonderful world of science that does not recognize any kind of limitation and that does not accept the fear of failure. There are 25 volunteers from university ready to help incoming students. Our volunteers are students who assist the incoming students with adjusting to life in Mostar. Buddies/volunteers will help incoming students by answering all his/her inquiries. Buddies/volunteers have a task to introduce an incoming student to academic life and to include the student into all extracurricular activities offered at the University. UNMO Buddy volunteers will also, on request, assist students to find accommodation and will help them with documents for the temporary residence. The buddies/volunteers are the best sources of information in terms of how to have a good time in Mostar, what places to see and where to go. Activities that we will offer to the International students are:
Welcoming/farewell ceremony, orientation week, pub crawl, hiking trips, excursions, International dinner/party, sports competitions, karaoke nights, pub quiz, Erasmus in schools, volunteering, learning the basics of the local language, fundraising (e.g. public kitchen), cleaning the campus/parks, open mic night, Bosnian night, cooking night, English conversation classes (if needed), foreign language (other than English or local) and First Aid short courses, dance courses, and many more. Our local students are more than welcome to participate in all our activities. You don’t have to be UNMO Buddy volunteer to join our events or courses. Of course, if you are interested in any exchange program and you have some questions, doubts or you’re not sure how to apply or which country to choose, feel free to contact us. We’ll gladly help you as much as we can.
