Do you want to become a buddy for a student with a disability?

Studyin Without Limitations are looking for enthusiastic students who want to become a buddy for a student with a disability. Having a disability yourself is not a requirement.

What are we asking?

  • That you arrange for regular meetings with your mentee (usually once every 1-2 weeks).
  • That you both agree on what the support/guidance will look like.

What’s in it for you?

  • Experience. As a buddy, you will gain a lot of experience in supporting and advising a student with a disability. You will be able to make a positive contribution to the university experience of a fellow student.
  • Training. We offer training sessions and peer consultations several times a year, so that you can learn more about various disabilities, and student guidance.
  • Fee. You will receive a volunteer fee for your mentoring activities.
