If you are a EdUHK student interested in different cultures and other parts of the world and ready to help those from overseas learn more about Hong Kong and Chinese culture, then the Global Affairs Office’s Buddy Programme would like to hear from you.

Gain new friends and social skills

Briefings and training are provided to equip you with the necessary capabilities and understanding to make a newcomer feel at ease in Hong Kong, developing invaluable skills for your future career and social activities.

Successful applicants will be paired with one or more students to help them settle in on campus. Use your “insider” knowledge of life at EdUHK and Hong Kong to support your buddy in adjusting to a new environment, answer questions, and organise activities for them.

How to apply

Recruitment usually takes place in May and November to enable EdUHK buddies to be paired with students joining on exchange in September and January. When recruitment opens, you can fill in an online application form here. Watch for notices online and around campus, telling you when to apply.
