As an ARU College student, you will receive a Welcome Buddy when you arrive. Your Welcome Buddy will be in contact with you before you start at ARU College, regardless of whether you’ve chosen to study on-campus or online.
Our Buddies are current ARU College and ARU students who can share their experiences, and let you know about all there is to get involved with on campus and around the area. Where possible, your Buddy will be a student already studying on your course or a similar area of study.
Our Buddies were just the same as you when they started. They were just as excited and nervous. They’ll be there to answer questions and help you settle in. You’ll keep in touch with your buddy through online chat and you’ll meet them face to face too, either in a video call or on campus in person (depending on how you’ve both chosen to study).
