Buddies scheme

Would you like to speak to a current research student from your home country to find out more about being a PhD student at Manchester?

There is a wealth of information on the International section of the University website to support your arrival, but we know that having a person you can contact directly can be very important.

Our buddies’ scheme can link you to with a ‘buddy’ from your home country (or nearby).

Once you receive an offer, you will be assigned a buddy, who will contact you to offer direct assistance and support in the weeks ahead of your arrival in Manchester.

If you have a question about our buddy scheme, please contact:
