Do you want to meet other international students and make new friends? Well, this is your chance.

Global Buddies, the Guild's amazing mentoring programme for international students, are holding a Term 2 launch event on Wednesday 23rd January so you can join this fantastic scheme.

What is Global Buddies?

Global Buddies is a voluntary scheme which matches small groups of international students with student volunteers, to form small multi-cultural UoB families. 

Students volunteer to provide advice on University life, help international students make new friends from different nationalities and support students as they settle into life at UoB. Volunteers even help to organize events such as Pizza and Fireworks, and the Global Cafe - where free Costa Coffee is on offer! 

If you want to be matched and join the Global Buddies family, get involved in fun activities, and enjoy Afternoon Tea head over to the Amos Room at 2.30pm on Wednesday 23rd January.
