International Buddy Programme

Run jointly by the student club ‘Study Abroad Network’ and the University’s International Student Support Services Office the IBP will pair you with a current Waikato student who has similar interests and who will act as your mentor.

Your mentor will provide advice and support to you as you settle into your new life in New Zealand. This means you have someone you know that you can ask for help and advice on anything, and they will either be able to help you, or they can point you in the right direction of where you can get help.

Together you and your mentor will take opportunities to socialise with other participants of the IBP and make new friends.
