The Friendship Programme offers international visitors (students, teachers and researchers) and local people the chance of mutual cultural exchange, unforgettable experiences and improving their language skills. Oñati Friends from the local community make it possible to learn about Basque/Spanish culture and everyday life.
All activities within the Friendship Programme are voluntary, which means that the international visitor and his/her “Oñati Friend” decide on their own how much and in what way they want to spend time together. Also the international visitors can suggest activities.
Who are the Friends?
Participants on the programme are ordinary local people living in Oñati or surroundings.
How to take part in the Friendship Programme?
1. The Friendship Programme aims to promote internationalisation and knowledge of new cultures among both international students/visitors and local friends.
2. The programme is voluntary, and the international students/ visitors and their local friends decide for themselves how and when they meet.
3. The local friend and the student/visitor are introduced to each other: they are given each other’s contact information and the first meeting is arranged by the programme coordinators. From then on, participants in the programme get together at their own convenience.
4. Feedback will be collected from both local friends and students/visitors in writing at the end of the term. This will help to develop and improve the programme.
