DEP: 3.6 Buddy System

There is an informal buddy system, arranged by the Year 1 tutor, which pairs incoming Year 1’s with outgoing Year 1’s. This arrangement is not intended in any way to replace the formal tutorial process, but is designed instead to allow new entrants to the course to gain a peer perspective. The frequency and amount of contact is at the discretion of the buddied pair, but pairs are encouraged to make contact before the course begins and to link up on the first day of the course, at the welcome campus tour and tea.
