Our story
Connecting peers for better decisions.
Unibuddy was born out of my own frustration in trying to make my university choice. How could I tell the difference between institutions from just prospectuses and their websites? What was it really like to study there? Would I relate to anyone there? And so Unibuddy was founded! Since we launched with just five universities in 2017, we’ve grown at a rapid rate, with more than 200 institutions world-wide recognising the value of digital peer-to-peer.

Connecting students on their higher ed journey

Our values
Students are at the heart of what we do.

Power to the Peers

Unibuddy was founded because connections and community matter. That extends to all aspects of how we work. Ideas are debated respectfully with open minds and hearts. We set aside ego so we can figure out as a team what is best - for customers, for the business, and for each other.

Hungry to Grow

Opportunities are made, not given. So we own our development and embrace uncertainty as a chance to learn and innovate. We are self-aware and vulnerable when we make mistakes. And when we aren't sure, we're humble and ask for help. Feedback is a gift, and as a result, our comfort zone is constantly expanding.

Thrive in the Thick of It

We’re all entrepreneurs - we think on our feet and stay scrappy. When confronted with a barrier, we’re thinking, how can we go over, under, around or through it? Our superpower is problem solving. And, we love to celebrate when we find a better way forward – because progress fuels our mission.

Impact over Input

Through it all, we stay focused on the big goal. We hold ourselves accountable to what we signed up to achieve. Our mantra is ‘work smarter, not harder.’ Our ultimate yardstick is impact. The impact we make on our customers, our students, and each other is the reason we jump out of bed every morning.
