UFO stands for University Friendship Organization and the purpose of UFO is to help students of Halmstad University make new friends, socialize and experience what Halmstad and Sweden has to offer. UFO is run by students at Halmstad University that plan and organize activities, trips and other events non-profit for international as well as Swedish students. To name a few previous happenings, UFO has arranged trips to Lapland (north of Sweden), moose safari, Liseberg in Gothenburg, ice skating in Helsingborg, skiing at Vallåsen, barbecues and mini golf.

The Buddy Programme is a mentorship arranged by the University Friendship Organization and the Coordinator for international students at the Student Union. Membership in the Student Union is not required and all students, international as well as Swedish, are welcome to apply. Together with your Buddy you can plan activities in your free time, practice English, Swedish or other languages or just keep in touch in case you encounter problems and need some guidance. Or why not start a Buddy group with your new friends? We will try to match you to a Buddy with interests similar to yours. Just fill in the form and we will contact you as soon as we have a match.
Having a Buddy
If you are new at the university or looking to meet new friends, you can apply to get a Buddy. It is up to you and your Buddy to decide what you want to do together. Perhaps you can go shopping, have a traditional Swedish “fika” (coffee and a snack), study, go to the gym together, bake, cook or visit new places. The Student Union and Halmstad University will also plan activities that you can join together. Having a buddy is a great way to make the most out of life as a student!
Becoming Someone’s Buddy
Being a Buddy is a lot of fun. You get to make friends for life, learn about different cultures and languages or maybe try a new hobby. It also means a lot of responsibility. To help you be the best Buddy you can be, we have written down what is and what is not expected of you as a Buddy in the contract you can find below. When you have fulfilled your contract and finished one term as a Buddy, you will receive a written certificate to show that you have dedicated your free time to helping someone out. Excellent for you and for your future work life!
If you have questions about the Buddy programme, please contact the Coordinator for International Students.
