In this program we match current students (Senior Buddies) with a small group of commencing international students (Junior Buddies) for a weekly coffee and a chat. This is a safe and comfortable environment where you can ask questions about Griffith, Gold Coast/Brisbane and Australia, as well as practice your English. It’s also a great way to make friends! Buddy groups meet at a cafe on-campus for six catch ups for one hour each time over a period of eight weeks. You’ll receive:
- A free beverage for attending each catch up
- Invaluable peer--to-peer experience and;
- Senior Buddies will earn a Certificate of Participation for attending six sessions!
