The Lincoln School of Film & Media’s International Buddy Scheme is the brainchild of Senior Lecturer Marcella Forster. The scheme was picked by the Student Engagement Innovation Fund at the University of Lincoln. It said the scheme’s “about facilitating the integration of international and home students in the LSFM through a collaborative media project and the creation of a buddy system of support for international students. It addresses the theme ‘engaging home and international students in building a sense of community and fostering integration’ and is a response to feedback from current international students.” Marcella’s update: “we recruited six student mentors for the LSFM International Buddy Scheme: Barney Oram, Ayodele Ogunshakin, Yiran Zhou, Josh Mathews, Laura Scott and Maz Jules. They were teamed up with our new international students at a breakfast event and I’ve posted a few photos.
