Become a Buddy Today

Current students provide new students with practical information, answers to initial questions and direct them to other relevant student services.

There are lots of opportunities to meet other new and current students.

This is an informal scheme but we suggest meeting once a week for the first few months of the term. For the remainder of the year it’s up to you and your Buddy how often you meet.

Meeting times and location can be flexible and are mutually agreed between Buddies and new students.

We organise a series of events for you to enjoy, meet new people and experience some of the things Kent has to offer!

Buddies and new students will be paired according to both of your preferences as far as possible, e.g. interests, subject, hobbies and language. Due to time constraints, there may be a delay in being matched with your buddy. Apologies for any inconvenience.
