Global Buddies International

We would like to welcome you to Scotland and help you to settle into life as a student at Glasgow Caledonian University. The first few months at university can be an exciting but nervous time and it can take time to adjust to a new environment. You may then want to consider taking part in our Global Buddies Program. The program pairs you, with a home student to give you a buddy that you can go to for help and advice during your first few weeks in Scotland. Your buddy will help you with:

  • Understand about the services that are provided by Glasgow Caledonian University.
  • Help you make new British and international friends.
  • Introduce you to UK culture.
  • Help you get to know the city.
  • Help you practise your conversational English.

If you are interested in being paired with a home student as part of the buddy program please fill out the application form and email it to We will be taking applications untill the 17th of October.
