Are you interested in learning about different cultures? Are you friendly, open-minded and keen to share your own culture with other students?
Apply to be a Group Leader and be part of our Global BUddies programme from September 2016. This opportunity is open to all current students and we'd love more UK students to take part! You can earn credits towards the Student Development Award or the Postgraduate Development Award – see the Frequently Asked Questions below for more details.
This is a great opportunity to improve your employability by developing all kinds of skills: cultural awareness, cross-cultural communication, leadership, events planning, and more.
The students in your group would be different nationalities to you and your role would be to organise activities and, importantly, encourage your group to be curious about each other’s cultures. You’ll be paired with at least one other Group Leader (a current BU student, like you) and your group will be about 15 students in total.
Your own personal experience of studying at BU will put you in a strong position to help new students settle in here and become part of a global community at BU.
