Our story

Connecting peers for better decisions.

There are turning points in our life when ‘official’ information just isn’t enough. Going to university, relocating, having a family – at times like these, we turn to our peers for a better understanding.

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.

Our Values

Students are at the heart of all we do.

  • Listen up, speak out.

    We are transparent, share the highs and lows, bring our whole selves to work, and communicate clearly – with each other and our customers.

  • Think big, act fast.

    We are bold in our ideas and our execution. We move at speed, testing and iterating as we progress. We make mistakes, learn lessons and move on.

  • Make the leap.

    We take initiative and own what we do. We strive for great versus good. We want to deliver impact in everything we do. And we put the tools in place to enable each of us to excel.

  • Power to the peers.

    We are collaborative, offering peer support across the board. We support each other, we support our community, and we build peer-to-peer technology to underpin it all. We draw on our collective strengths so that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
