Buddies Scheme


"Lasting and rewarding friendships for everyone involved!" is the slogan for our Buddies Scheme.


New international students are matched with one or more of our Buddy volunteers. The buddies will share their knowledge of HKBU and Hong Kong and help new students become familiar with their new surroundings, particularly during the first month of arrival at HKBU. Likewise, the buddies will learn about the culture and country of the students with whom they are matched. The Buddies Scheme serves a meaningful platform for all participants to gain lifelong friendships and a deeper understanding of their own culture.
