Want to get the most out of Ireland’s first five star University? Love meeting new people and experiencing new cultures?The annual International Buddy System is now open for applications.
The Buddy System is a great opportunity for Irish students to meet one of UCC’s International students, and for visiting students to get a real taste of Ireland… not the travel book kind! Each Irish student will be paired with an International Student, showing them Irish student life and culture, and in return, they will share their culture with you. How you do it is up to you- go for a coffee, a try something new with a Club or Society, meet their friends, or take them out to one of UCC’s official nightclubs with you and your friends. The aim of the programme is to meet new people, and help your buddy feel at home and more comfortable studying in UCC! If you want to take advantage of this incredible opportunity, please fill out the form by January 22nd.
Once all of the buddies have been paired up, you will be invited to the first Buddy event of the year to meet and mingle with your Buddy and other students. If you have any questions or queries please don’t hesitate to contact Grace O Leary, our International Student Officer on firstname.lastname@example.org.
