Buddy program

Meeting current students can help you settle into life at Curtin

When you join Curtin, you can apply to be assigned a buddy based on your study area and shared interests. A buddy is a Curtin student, who will help you settle in and answer any questions you may have.

After you arrive in Perth, your buddy will contact you and arrange to meet you on campus during Orientation Week or in the first few days of semester.

You can ask your buddy basic questions about student life in Perth and meet them on campus for lunch or a chat. Together you can socialise with other students at regular events held by Curtin International.

The program has received great feedback and students often form long-term friendships through the experience. Over the semester, some students and buddies may plan holidays, road trips, events and activities together. The Buddy program has also linked students to networking opportunities for employment, internships and work experience.

Hear what our international students say about the Buddy program.
