Starting university can be as daunting as it is exciting, which is why the MDXSU Buddy Programme is here to help new Middlesex students settle into university life.
The Buddy Programme is an informal mentoring scheme which connects Middlesex freshers with returning students.
As well as giving new starters a friendly face to turn to with their questions, they'll also have the chance to access all the knowledge, experience and tips that our returning students can pass on regarding the non-academic side to university life.
Want insider knowledge on uni life and living in London? In the first few months of settling in and finding your way around, having a bit of extra support and advice can be invaluable. Join the Buddy Programme, and you'll have someone to rely on for all your questions and queries about university and student life.
You will also be invited to join us at our Buddy events during Welcome Month, giving you the chance to get to know both your Buddy as well as other new students. These exclusive Buddy events include a Buddy Link Up and a walking tour of central London's most infamous landmarks.
To sign up as a new student, fill in this quick form.
