The Study Buddy Club is a space for students and learners to connect and support each other. Studying can be an isolating and frustrating experience, especially if you are an online student, and studies have shown that students have a better overall experience and a higher success rate if they work with others with similar interests and goals.

Whether you're a full-time student or learning on-the-go, the club has something for you. Our members are of all ages and from all corners of the globe with interests in a large variety of subjects, and we strive to be a welcoming and educational place for everyone.

By joining the Study Buddy Club, you can create your own Study Buddy Profile and start searching for compatible online study partners based on your interests and preferences. Once you have found a potential study partner, you can use our Private Messaging System to send a private message and hopefully start your Study Buddy journey. Who knows where it will take you!

How to Join
Joining the Study Buddy Club is quick and easy. Just go to your Account Details Page and enter any information you wish to share about you, your studies and your preferences. Check the box to join the Study Buddy Club, then, click on "Save". That's it! You will be able to edit or update your profile at any time.

Some Tips

Make sure your profile is complete
- By giving detailed information about yourself in your profile, other members will be able to see at a glance if you might be a suitable study partner. When you register as a Study Buddy, fill in as many of the fields as possible, and make sure you let others know more about you in the "about me" field.

If you have already registered as a Study Buddy, you can always update or complete your profile here.

Upload an Avatar - An Avatar is a picture or image that represents you. When you upload a personal Avatar, it appears next to your Username and on your profile page. Members who have an Avatar stand out more and are much more likely to find a Study Buddy. If you haven't already done so, see how to upload your avatar here.

Select your search criteria carefully - When you start your search for a Study Buddy, remember that the more criteria you enter, the less results you will get. So, if you don't find the right person straight away, only put in the criteria that is most important for you. You can always narrow down your search later.

Get in touch - If you see a member who looks interesting to you in the search results, get in touch with them to find out more. To do this, click on their username or avatar to go to their profile page. You can then click on "Start Conversation" to send them a private message. Don't be afraid to contact several potential study buddies to keep your options open.

Check back often - With new members joining everyday, it's important to check back regularly to see if there are any new Study Buddies you could connect with. The Study Buddy Members Page always features the latest Study Buddy members.

Share your experiences - If you successfully find an online study partner, share your story so others can learn how you did it and how you went about studying together.
