Alumni Referral Program

As a University of Buckingham graduate, you’ve experienced first-hand the advantages of a personalised education and you know what kind of students would thrive at Buckingham.

And that’s why we’re introducing our Alumni Referral Programme. We know many of you have recommended Buckingham to family, friends and colleagues: and, moving forward, we want to thank you for this work that you’re doing.

Do you know an international student who would like to study at the University of Buckingham?

When a new student applies directly to us they can now detail who recommended Buckingham to them. If the Referred Student’s application results in a registration, we will reward you with £150, as well as donating £150 in your name towards the Student Hardship Fund (to help current students in need). Please see the terms and conditions.

We are so proud of our alumni and the life-changing work that they do. We hope you can help us extend Buckingham’s family so we can support other motivated learners like you.

How does it work?

Buckingham accepts applications all year round via our direct application form which is accessible from any course page on our website. To be eligible for the reward, the person you are referring must be an international student and list your details in the relevant fields on our direct application form when they apply for their preferred course. They can apply to any of our undergraduate or postgraduate programmes (that last 12 months or longer), however they need to be a new student to the University.

There’s no limit on the amount of students you can refer, but you can only claim one referral reward per registration. They will also need to be a direct applicant to us, as UCAS applicants and/or students applying via an agent are not eligible.

For courses starting in September, you’ll be paid in November; for January starters, payment will be made in March. The extra £150 will be deposited into the Student Hardship Fund which is available for students in need (you can find out more about the Fund here).

Referral applications under the programme are now open for the 2020 and 2021 intakes. Read our terms and conditions.

We appreciate your continued support and thank you for sharing the Buckingham story with your friends, family and colleagues.
