Buddy Meetings! 8th December - 17th December 2021

Buddy week is a week allocated in the calendar for you to arrange to meet your buddy and get to know them a little bit.

It is up to you how and when to meet but when you do meet, we would like you to complete our buddy week challenge just for fun...

Challenge Outline

  1. Contact your buddy and arrange to meet.
  2. During your meeting, try to find out as much as you can about each other in the time you have.
  3. Take a photo ( or a screenshot) that represents your meeting - This can be a selfie or something more creative that represents what you talked about or what you have in common.
  4. Follow this link to our 'Buddy Week Challenge' padlet to upload your photo. Comment on the photo with your names and something you have in common. Once it has been approved you photo will appear along with the others on the padlet  you see below on this page. You should also be able to see some examples from the Postgraduate Education team.
