Buddy Programme 2016/17 (Semester 2)

At the beginning of every semester, HKU receives a new batch of exchange students incoming Hong Kong from all over the world.  They are not only new to the place; they are also new to HKU and probably need help to adapt to the university life here.  As you are / will be one of the experienced exchange returnees who have stayed in a totally different culture for at least a semester, you understand best the feeling and situation these incoming students are facing, and probably you will be able to help these students adapt to the HKU life smoothly.



Being a Buddy Mentor is like being a friend of the incoming exchange students; not only you will assist your mentee(s) by advising them with tips to spend joyful time here in Hong Kong and at HKU; you will also be able to enjoy cultural exchange with them and hang out together out of class.  Stay in touch closely with them via email or other social platforms would mean so much to them!

If you want to be a Buddy Mentor for semester 2 2016/17, please complete the form in the link below by December 4, 2016.


The pairing exercise will be conducted in mid-Dcember and the result will be emailed to you around that time.  A maximum of 4 mentees will be assigned to you (There might be a chance that you are assigned to fulltime non-local freshmen who also need help to adapt to their first year at HKU).

Please write to if you have any queries.
