It can be hard to meet new people at University and to help you with this, we want to let you know about the Business School Postgraduate Buddy Scheme.
The scheme is available to all Business School Taught Postgraduate students. It aims to match students together, either in pairs or small groups to help you:
Comments from students who registered for the buddy scheme in 2021/22:
It’s a good way to meet new friends
It is a good way to expand your initial network
It is a great way to meet other students, interact and develop friendships
When signing up via the online form, you will be asked a few questions about yourself, your interests, and what you want to get out of the buddy scheme.
Using the information submitted through the registration form you will be matched with other students into groups of 2-4.
Once you have been matched, you will receive the name and University email address of your student buddy, or buddies. Then it is over to you!
There are a number of different buddy schemes that you can join at the University of Leeds. These schemes will connect you with other students, and can be a great way to meet new people and make friends or other useful connections (like study buddies).
The University Buddy Scheme
The University Buddy Scheme is open to all students across the University. This scheme will match you one-to-one with another student who has similar interests to you. Students are matched with students who are at the same level of study, but who will be from a different School.
This scheme gives you the option to join a small group of buddies hosted by a level 2+ student who will be able to help you find out more about life at Leeds. Your group will help you enhance the experiences you are looking for at Leeds.
The LUBS PGT Buddy scheme
This scheme is exclusively open to PGT students studying in LUBS. You will be matched up with 1-3 other students, based on your interests and also based on what you hope to get out of the scheme.
