Buddy Scheme 2020

What is the Buddy Scheme?

The Buddy Scheme is designed to help you settle into life as a Queen Mary student with the help and support of a more experienced student in your school. You will be grouped with other students in your cohort and be supported by a trained Queen Mary Buddy mentor.

What are the benefits of having a Buddy mentor?

Being part of the Buddy Scheme will allow you to;

  • meet other students from your school in your year and beyond
  • learn about all that is on offer to Queen Mary students
  • gain practical advice and support for any issues or concerns


How do I sign up for the Buddy Scheme?

In many schools this will happen automatically. Where this is the case, during Welcome Week your buddy will send you a welcome e-mail to your Queen Mary e-mail address with an invite to meet either face-to-face or virtually.

If you have not been contacted by a mentor by 21st September and would like to be put in touch with someone in your school please complete the I want a mentor form.

I missed the e-mail and would still like a mentor, what do I do now?

Don’t worry if you miss the initial contact from your mentor, all our mentors know how busy Welcome Week can be! Just respond to your mentor’s e-mail and let them know you would like to be part of the scheme.
