How does UPM Buddies works?
- Sign up with us using UPM Buddies form, and email the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Selected buddies will be then matched with the incoming new mobility students.
- New buddies will be first briefed and trained by the Putra International Centre’s officer on their roles. e.g. involvement in orientation activities, facilitate brief tour around UPM and participating in activities organized by UPM Buddies Association and Putra International Centre and social trip.
What’s in it for UPM Buddies?
- Buddies develop leadership skills under the guidance of experienced Putra International Centre officers. By enabling every Buddies to plan, develop, organize, and lead various activities of an international nature, Buddies are forced to break out of their comfort zone and into a whole new arena.
- If you think being a Buddy is all about work and no play, you are wrong! Buddies are a cool bunch of students who know when to have fun. Besides organising activities for others, Buddies can also join in the action themselves.
- The opportunities presented to Buddies are endless and not merely limited within UPM.
Buddies who perform well are able to:
- Tendency to attend short exchange programmes.
- Be an ambassador of UPM to all sorts of international events.
- For undergraduate students, they could collect 5 points of merit for their participation.
