Get the most out of UEA with a buddy!
buddy(su) is the best way to make the most of your time at UEA and get support from our trained student volunteers. This is a great way to get to know students from different courses and schools as well as outside of university accommodation. Whether you want to know the best place to study on campus, learn a new skill or meet new people – joining the buddy scheme can help!
buddy(su) matches students primarily in their first year of study with a buddy according to their 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.
buddy(su) run specific events which help shape our student community and give you an idea of the range of opportunities here at UEA. From regular social events, trips, group study sessions and more - there is something for everything to get involved with.
