Unibuddy is a new initiative the University of Suffolk has joined, which connects prospective students with our student ambassadors. When looking at going to university, you might have a lot of questions such as…
How to apply to the University of Suffolk?
What courses are offered and how to find out more?
How can I become a Student Ambassador?
What accommodation is available on and off campus?
What else does the University offer? Societies, student life, events etc
Unibuddy enables you to chat to our student ambassadors so all of those questions you may have can be answered by people who have been through it all, giving you the confidence to make an informed decision and easy transition into uni life.
Send a message today to one of our friendly student ambassadors – they’re here to help.
The event will be spread across our campus, giving you the opportunity to visit specialist academic facilities and ensuring that we minimise large numbers in any one space. Wearing a face covering is encouraged in crowded and enclosed spaces on campus, so please bring a face covering with you in case you should require it.
