Buddy Scheme 2020-21
This year's Buddy Scheme is now closed. We will re-open for new participants in Welcome Week.
The Buddy Scheme is a peer-to-peer support system that helps students feel part of the Warwick University community.
Being a member of the Buddy Scheme has lots of benefits; it will help you make friends, learn more about Warwick, and introduce you to new ideas and opportunities.
We match Warwick students together from any year, course or study mode based on their answers to a short but informative questionnaire about their preferences.
We feel that it can be really beneficial for students to be matched with a peer from outside their usual networks, so they can get to understand the student experience from a different perspective.
It is a flexible, informal scheme that works around you!
