Buddy Scheme

Who better to ask all your questions about Queen Mary than someone who's been through it?

Buddy Scheme

The Buddy Scheme is designed to help you settle into life as a Queen Mary student.

How does it work?

Two students talking about the Buddy Scheme

The Buddy Scheme is here to help our new undergraduate students settle into life at Queen Mary. Starting university can leave you with a lot of questions, many of which current students are the best equipped to answer. Our mentors are trained to support incoming students socially and will work with you throughout the year to unburden some of your worries, help you to integrate into Queen Mary and make sure you truly enjoy your time here.

You'll be matched up with a more experienced student in your School, who can offer help and support as you adjust to student life. You will be grouped with other students in your cohort and be supported by a trained Queen Mary Buddy mentor.
