The International Relations Office welcomed the exchange students at a reception held on campus. For the first time this year, the ‘Buddy System’ was introduced which makes provision for Poly students to take responsibility for the well-being of their foreign counterparts by assisting them with any problems they may encounter during their stay in Namibia. This will help the foreign students to settle quickly in their new environment.
