Get a Buddy

New Students

Welcome to Brunel University London

Starting at University is an exciting new step, but it can also be a daunting experience. The Brunel Buddies Scheme is here to help you settle into life at Brunel.

Fill in this form and once you’ve been accepted to enrol at Brunel, you will be matched with a trained Buddy (an existing Brunel student) who will be on hand during the first six weeks to help you settle into university life. If you are worried about finding your way around, making friends or generally adapting to this new chapter– don’t worry you won’t be alone.

The primary role of your buddy will be to help you settle into Brunel and signpost you to Brunel services that you may need once you start. They will also share their experiences with you and offer peer advice on how to make the most of your time at Brunel.

Before the beginning of term, you’ll be emailed your Buddy’s details and information on how to organise meeting them. They’ll be there as your Buddy for the first 6 weeks of term, giving you an insider’s perspective, experienced advice, and be there to cheer you on – right from the start.

Please note due to the number of students that apply although we do our very best, we cannot guarantee that you will be matched with a Buddy.

Tell us about yourself

The Brunel Volunteers Team will endeavour to match you with a Buddy according to your specified preference (course, gender or mature student). However due to Brunel Buddy availability this cannot be guaranteed.
