Become a Global Buddy

Are you an international or EU student? Would you like to make new friends and find out more about studying at Nottingham? Then Global Buddies is for you!

But what is Global Buddies? Well, it’s a peer-to-peer support scheme that pairs you up with a current University of Nottingham student buddy who’ll be your guide, introduce you to all the amazing things your Students’ Union has to offer and help you settle into life here. All you have to do is sign up for a mentor.

Your buddy will be in touch with you before you arrive, and they’ll answer your questions about life in the UK and at Nottingham so you’re fully prepared when you get here.

After all, ‘buddy’ is another name for friend, and that’s just what Global Buddies is all about – helping you make friends.

Does that sound like something you’d like to be part of? Applications are now open, so make sure you apply and become part of Nottingham’s global community. You’ve got until Friday 23 August to sign up.
