It is made possible by a grant from the Ministry of Culture and Science of North Rhine-Westphalia. The goal of the orientation mentoring is to give all new students a good start to their studies. At the core of ‚Start with a buddy‘ are experienced and qualified students, the so-called „Buddies“, who welcome new students and support them during their first months.

Furthermore, particular courses in the Optional Studies module especially designed to meet the needs of first semester students are made possible by the grant. Additionally, ‚Start with a buddy‘ regularly organizes networking events, where first semester students have the chance to meet the Folkwang community.
