Our ‘Team Quarantine’ buddies are now in their third week supporting our new international student arrivals. Moving to another country to study is exciting, inspiring and terrifying all at the same time; but this year the covid-19 crisis has thrown additional complications into the mix. Many of our international students this year must quarantine for 14 days after they arrive in the UK. This means no shopping, no walks around the new neighbourhood, and no visits to campus!

In order to support our international students in this strange time, our team of buddies (all current international students themselves) have been making calls to check in with them, offer support, a friendly ear and ensuring each student has access to essential practical items like food and medicines. We want to make sure that all our new students feel part of our Salford community as early as possible, and we are so pleased at the positive response the buddies have been receiving.

This scheme is ending now, but you can still receive support from peer support volunteers during your self-isolation if you sign up here
