Buddies Scheme

"Lasting and rewarding friendships for everyone involved!" is the slogan for our Buddies Scheme. By joining our Buddies Scheme, 2 or 3 HKBU students will be assigned to be your buddies.  They will help you to prepare for your arrival and become familiar with your surroundings, particularly during your first month at HKBU.


Academic Home

In order to assist and enhance international students' academic experience at HKBU, academic departments will be assigned to them as their "academic homes".  Respective Academic Homes will assign a faculty mentor to each of the international students and will engage them in events and activities, as appropriate.
