Whenever possible every incoming student at the University of Coimbra will be assigned a Mobility Buddy! One student from the UC will simply contact you by e-mail before your study period at the University of Coimbra, offering support and assistance if needed, for ex. help arranging accommodation, finding your way around campus, etc. Mobility Buddies also show exchange students the city, student’s night life and may help in problematic issues like opening a bank account. This program is launched by the main International Office of the UC and it aims at making the integration of the International Students easier.
