I agree to be present at planned buddy meetings. During the introduction I will be present and be a part of all activities that I am responsible for or be responsible to find my own replacement. If I choose to decline or to drop out of my buddyship I must immediately inform my coordinators ,in order for them to find my replacement.
By sending in this form I have applied for buddyship. This does not mean that I have been accepted as a buddy but rather that I will be under consideration by the International Student Assistan to become a buddy. The International Student Assistant will decide if I get to represent International Masters during the Autumn semester of 2020.
