Who we are and what we do
Global Buddies is a scheme run by the Guild of Students to support international students to settle into life at the University of Birmingham.
Through regular social events and activities, including the fortnightly Global Café, you will have plenty of opportunities to network with other students, have some fun and meet our volunteer ‘buddies’, who can offer informal peer-to-peer support.
“Being a Global Buddy has been fantastic! Having the opportunity to meet up with new people from around the world and show them the best of Birmingham has been an amazing experience. It’s really nice seeing people settle in, make new friends and enjoy activities together. And it’s been really rewarding helping make some of the activities happen too!”
