New in Iasi? You must still have a lot of questions unanswered or insecurities about what your Erasmus experience might be like. So good that there can be someone to help you with all of that, someone like a buddy. 

Get yourself a buddy and start your study experience in the best way possible! 

ESN Iasi’s Buddy Program is based on our motto, Students helping students, and is designed to integrate international students in the social and academic life of Iasi and to make them feel like home, from the very beginning of the semester. 


All international students can apply for the Buddy Program. They will receive an ESN Iasi’s volunteer as a Buddy. The volunteer will make their stay in Iasi much easier, by answering the student’s questions about the city, the universities and more. In this way, the foreign student will get a chance to meet someone that can help him around and that could also become a good friend!


So, if you're an international student looking for a buddy to be there for you in your Erasmus experience in Iași, all you need to do is create an account on Papaya App, select Romania as country and then ESN Iasi as your section.  You can download the app on your phone or you can access this link:

What is PapayaApp you might ask? Well, it is an ESN matching system that will pair you with the buddy that fits you the most. The Buddy System Responsible will match you with the buddy you have most in common with. After the match is done, you are one message away from getting to know the person who will be your starting point of your experience in Iași. So, hurry up and find your ESN Buddy!
