Starting at University is exciting but it can be daunting for some, whether it’s leaving the family home, moving to a busy city like Brighton, or moving country altogether!

This is why the Buddy Scheme trains student volunteers to help new students settle in at Sussex.

Buddy Scheme events help new students and student volunteers get to know each other, Brighton and life beyond Sussex!
