If you will be a first year Undergraduate student in 2020/21 you can request a Student Buddy at anypoint during this academic year. This means that, if once you're studying here you think you would benefit from this extra support, it's not too late to get involved in the scheme.
One of the questions on the Request a Student Buddy form asks which of the following is the most important to you and we will take this into account when matching you with a Student Buddy:
We can't promise that we will be able to match you with a Buddy who is studying in the same department as you (because this depends on the number of Buddies and students from your department who are involved in the scheme) but we will certainly match you with a Buddy who is familiar with the campus you are studying on.
The Student Buddying team will email you with details of your Student Buddy within 14 days of your request being submitted.
