Become an EFRI buddy!

Become an EFRI buddy!

The University of Rijeka, Faculty of Economics and Business, is looking for EFRI buddies for the academic year 2019/2020!


As the name indicates, EFRI buddy is a project through which we would like to provide support of older students to new generations of freshmen and prepare them for student living.

Every EFRI buddy will be responsible for a group of freshmen, with the obligation to organize meetings for their group (at least once a month) throughout the whole winter semester (more or fewer meetings according to necessity). At these gatherings, they would inform them about current things important for studying and student living. The first meeting would be in the first week of classes in the academic year 2019/2020.


All candidates that apply and satisfy the conditions listed below, will be prepared for any possible questions that freshmen might ask them in an educational workshop "EFRI for freshmen”. Also, all selected Buddy's, after the introductory meeting, are obliged to attend a workshop on advanced presentation skills that will be organized only for them.
