sign up for our buddy scheme

When you sign up for a buddy through buddy(su), we match you with a buddy according to your needs, circumstances and interests - such as area of study and hobbies.

Buddies are trained to help support you to make the most of your time at university and will be a great source of knowledge for everyday life as a student!

Sign me up, buddy!
