The HELLO Project

The Hello Project is a buddy scheme to help new international students settle into life in Plymouth. It matches new international students at the University of Plymouth with home student buddies at the start of the academic year. 
Students can get together to talk, ask questions, get information, and share ideas. New students can find out about living in Plymouth and studying at university. Most importantly, the HELLO project gives new international students the opportunity to make new friends.
