Study Buddy project

Do you find it hard to study online or at home? You are not the only one! A Study Buddy might help. A buddy can help you organize your study activities or study approach. You can also ask for a Buddy if you need some (extra) social contact. You meet with your Buddy for one hour a week, online or face-to-face, for instance for a “1.5 m distance coffee-to-go“ on the campus.

This project was initially only available for students with special needs. Under the corona measures the availability of buddies has been extended to all students.

Send an e-mail to  Please, mention in your e-mail the following:

  • name, course in which you are enrolled and student number
  • what kind of support you need from a study buddy
  • buddy characteristics (study, faculty, gender, age, etc.)

Note: due to the summer holidays we may not be able to match students to buddies before September. As soon as we have found a buddy for you, we will send you an e-mail.

Help a fellow student for one hour a week!

As a Study Buddy you help one Dutch or international student, possibly but not necessarily with a (physical) disability, who could use some help. You meet up (online) for 1 hour per week. A Buddy can help out planning a study schedule, discuss how to tackle a certain course or just grab a cup of coffee (with 1.5 m distance) on campus together. You determine the purpose and the duration of your teamwork with one of the coordinators of the project.
