Buddy Programme

Buddy Programme for newly-admitted international undergraduates & incoming exchange students


For international students who are unfamiliar with the lifestyle and culture of Hong Kong, studying at HKU can be a daunting experience. That's why we offer the Buddy Programme, in which new international students will be paired up with current students (Buddy Mentors) who provide the helping hand and friendship to the international new comers at HKU.

No application is required. A Buddy Mentor will be automatically assigned to all incoming International Undergraduates & Exchange Students in mid-July for students arriving in Fall and mid-December for students arriving in Spring.Your Buddy Mentor will be happy to provide linguistic support, cultural guidance and information about life at HKU to you.
