Via Unibuddy, you can give students a genuine insight into your student experience and provide much needed reassurance. You will usually spend 1-2 hours per week working on the platform and we would expect you to do the following: 

  • To answer questions from students about study, life and your experience at UCL and The Bartlett.

  • To check your account on a daily basis and answer questions in a timely manner.   
  • To keep conversations going and build up a friendly relationship with students.  
  • Opportunity to create blogs and vlogs about life at The Bartlett which are hosted on the Unibuddy platform. 

We’re looking for enthusiastic and confident students who are keen to share their Bartlett experience with prospective students and their families.
