Buddy System / "Parrainage"

All year long, the International Relations Office organizes the buddy system, also called « parrainage » in French.
It is a matching system between a French student from the University and an exchange student in Tours for an academic semester or year.
It will enable you to easily meet a French student who will help you discover the city and the University !
It is a also a very good way to discover the habits of the French people in a genuine way !
To participate in the buddy system, please register on the online platform :
