Algebra Buddy Program

Algebra Buddy Program aims to assign incoming international students with Algebra Buddies – local students willing to help them settle into their new home in Croatia, at Algebra. Buddies can help international students explore Zagreb, reveal tips and tricks about studying at Algebra, and above all, have fun while hanging together. The International Office staff meets with Buddies on a regular basis and connects new students with their Buddies, and also supports their activities.

Applications for new Algebra Buddies open at the beginning of each semester.
