Kingston University's Buddy Scheme

We know starting university is exciting but adapting to a new town (or country), meeting new people and learning new stuff can all be a bit daunting!

We've got great, friendly staff here at Kingston, but we know that sometimes you might want to get the lowdown and advice from another student and that's where your Buddy comes in. They are here to help you through your first term, be a friendly face to chat to, to ask questions of and to check in with you.

Most new first years have been allocated a Buddy – they might not be studying the same subject as you but they have been a first year student at Kingston, so they can relate to some of what you are experiencing!
