SU Buddy 2020/21

Details Hide[-]

Are you interested in becoming a Buddy to a new student? As well as the rewarding feeling you'll get from helping someone else, you'll also add valuable experience to your CV, particularly your communication and people skills. Also, we’ll provide training and support you need to help you be amazing in your role.

There’s no special criteria, we’re looking for enthusiastic continuing students (2nd year, 3rd year, Postgrad or if you've completed IFY) who want to volunteer to help new students find their feet and have fun during Welcome Week and the first term.  There are also opportunities to continue to be a Buddy, helping students throughout the year. Students in any year of study can apply for a Buddy to give them a little extra support when needed.
