What's Unibuddy?

Partnering with universities around the world since 2017, Unibuddy helps prospective students to virtually connect with student ambassadors, staff and other students of a uni, giving you a source of info that's as honest and authentic as they come. Learn more at

On Whatuni, the platform lets you chat in real time with current uni students – your 'Buddies'. You can ask them questions about anything from the halls of residence, to the workload, to the nightlife. We've initially launched with Buddies from a few select institutions and will be adding more very soon.

Our partnership comes as demand grows for peer-to-peer support during uni applications. A study by Unibuddy and Intead found that 57% of students said speaking with an institution’s student ambassadors was the most helpful resource for choosing a university.

How do you use Unibuddy on Whatuni?

It's simple:

  1. Sign up on Whatuni
  2. Choose your Buddy
  3. Send your message
  4. Get notified when you get a reply

All chats with your Buddies are one-to-one and absolutely private.

Real uni students. Real uni insights. Chat with a Buddy now.
