Organized by HEADSTART, an organization dedicated to the attraction and retention of internationals in Central Denmark, the Welcome Buddy Programme helps you as an international newcomer during your first few months in Aarhus.

You will be paired with a Welcome Buddy who will share tips and advice about life in Denmark. Participation is free but you need to make sure to commit and dedicate time to the Welcome Buddy Programme. Please note that the programme is not designed for students. 

Are you a Dane or an long-term expat living in Aarhus?

Then sign up to become a Welcome Buddy for an international newcomer!
