Going to uni, whether it's close or far away from where you live, can be a scary and confusing experience. The University is trying to make the process a bit easier by having Unibuddies. What is a Unibuddy? They are students that have signed up to be available to get questions from people who are thinking of coming to Kent. What's the weather like? How are your lecturers? As an international student what was the hardest thing to get used to? All of these and more, are questions that Unibuddy students can help answer.
Want to sign up? On top of good karma for helping other people out, you also get:
- 30 Employability Points for signing up
- 10 points for attending the training session
- Additional 10 points for the most committed ‘buddy’ per month
- Additional 5 points for best blog post per month
- Will count towards KSCV
