Each year the Go Global Team run a buddy programme where we match new exchange and visiting students with Swansea University students who have recently returned from a programme abroad or are planning to go abroad. It is a great way to make new friends, improve your language skills and have some fun! Please indicate on the application if you would like a buddy.
We aim to match students according to preferences such as gender, languages spoken, hobbies/interests etc. Please let us know your buddy preferences as soon as possible so that a suitable match can be found.
We will aim to send your buddy details a month prior to your arrival so that you have time to connect before you get to Swansea.
Each semeter the Go Global Team host a buddy event where you will have the chance to meet up with your buddy and other students in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. You can also arrange to meet up outside of the events and do your own thing.
