1.Opportunity of the Week


Do you want to learn more about different cultures on campus and boost your CV at the same time? If so, apply to become a BU Global Buddy

Are you friendly and keen to share your own culture with other students?

BU are now recruiting current BU students to become Global BUddies Group Leaders for groups of new students in September 2017. Could this be you?

Registrations close at midnight on Sunday 14 May

The students in your group would be different nationalities to you and your role would be to organise activities and, importantly, encourage your group to be curious about each other’s cultures. You’ll be paired with at least one other Group Leader (a current BU student, like you) and your group will be about 15 students in total.

We welcome applications from students of ALL nationalities. Your own personal experience of studying at BU will put you in a strong position to help new students settle in here and become part of a global community at BU.

Want to know more? Read the Frequently Asked Questions on our webpage.

If you want to become a Global BUddies Group Leader, REGISTER NOW

Registrations close at midnight on Sunday 14 May. We’ll email you by Wednesday 17 May to tell you whether or not you have been selected and to confirm the training date and time (venue to be confirmed).
