What to Expect from the International Buddy Programme

Perks of having a Buddy

The UL Global Buddy Programme is a great opportunity to meet domestic UL students and get insider tips!  

  • You will be matched with a UL Buddy who has similar interests as you, along with a few other new international students.  

  • Your UL buddy will contact you via email a few weeks before your arrival to introduce themselves. Here you can ask any pre-arrival questions you may have.  

  • Once you arrive, your UL buddy will arrange to meet you and share advice on settling into life at UL. 

  • Throughout the semester your UL buddy will collect tickets for events for you and be available as a support when you need.  

  • At our free Buddy Programme events you will have the chance to meet a wider network of other UL students and new international students just like you.
