Starting life at university is a very exciting time and represents a great achievement. The experience is different for everyone, but making friends with a current student can help you clear up any questions you have and make the most of your first few weeks with us.
By signing up for our Buddy Scheme you'll have the chance to make contact with a Year 2 or 3 student who has already gone through many of the experiences you are about to have, and who will do their best to help you settle into university life, whether you're based on our Cambridge or Chelmsford campus.
If you sign up for our Buddy scheme, we will match you with a Year 2 or 3 student, preferably from your own course and with similar interests, as far as we are able. All our Buddies are trained in how best to help and communicate advice to new students, and have signed up because they are friendly people and, based on their own experience, would like to help our new students.
