What is i-Buddies?
Coming to live in a new country is often exciting, though at first it may be confusing or even stressful. New students may feel under pressure to adapt to a new country, new culture and new student life at DMU. i-Buddies are here to help new international students settle in and to meet students from the UK and from other countries, keeping in contact with new students and offering friendly support. The scheme lasts for one term. Over 1800 students have been involved in the scheme since it was set up in 2012.
