The FemEng buddy system is designed to give younger students who have membership to FemEng society a way to ask questions about university to older students who are studying the same thing. This is not a tutoring system but students can ask any questions they want to their partner older student, for example, tips on how to revise for a certain subject, what a certain subject will be like, where can I get help with this?, when should I start applying to internships etc.
For the partner student in an older year the buddy system gives them a chance to make friends in younger years and pass on tips and tricks they have learnt through the years. This help can be anything from occasional facebook messages to meetings. In return this can be used in applications (FemEng will confirm your participation) and allows students to become involved in FemEng by helping other women in engineering.
