BTU Buddies - 'First Contact Tutors'

In order to make your start in a new environment as comfortable and simple as possible, we provide First Contact Tutors. The tutors are there to assist you in visiting city administration offices, to give you a tour through Cottbus or Senftenberg, and to help you understand how things work in Germany.

If you are interested in having a tutor, then just make a request for one at the Welcome and Registration Point.
