Global Summer School student buddies

Become a Global Summer School student buddy!

Are you staying in Nottingham this summer? Do you love NTU and Nottingham? Are you interested in developing your skills and your CV? Want to gain international experience right here on your campus?

Global Summer School (GSS) is a summer programme which welcomes students from around the world to study at NTU. The courses are two to four weeks in duration from 8 July to 9 August 2019. There are a range of courses available across different subjects from Architecture to Sociology.

NTU Global is running a competition to recruit Global Summer School student buddies who will win a place on a two-week summer school course alongside the international students. Upon successfully completing the course you will be awarded 10 credit points* which will be recorded on your diploma supplement (HEAR).

As a part of the student buddy role you’ll help us welcome, support, and offer friendship to our international summer school students.

The duties include:

  • pre-arrival welcome and support by email
  • taking students on short city-tours
  • meeting students and bringing them to their welcome and induction sessions
  • showing them around the campus
  • accompanying them on arranged social activities during the evenings
  • encouraging students to attend the Global Community Lunch at Global Lounges
  • attending and supporting the farewell parties
  • accompanying students on a UK city trip and local sightseeing activities.
