Become an international buddy

Many Loughborough students spend their placement year outside of the UK, embarking on a year abroad, perhaps in a country that they have never visited before. 

To help them settle into their new home, we are asking alumni to be a buddy.

We will reach out to alumni who are in regions where students will be moving to for work or study. If you would like to offer to be a buddy, we'd love to hear from you and we will get in touch if and when a student is moving to your area.
