What our students say
“Much of my undergraduate university experience was during lockdown. I still very much felt part of the student community (albeit, working remotely) and the teaching/support was excellent. Having gained a First-Class score in my BSc, I was given the opportunity to study a postgraduate MBA. I believe attaining both my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in 3 years, has put me ahead of my peers in the graduate job search. This is a testament to the quality of teaching and support at the university, which has driven me to challenge myself and complete my academic journey.” – Tom
“The idea of getting a business degree in two years seemed extremely appealing and this is why I chose Buckingham University. The first few months were the hardest as I had no formal business education background. Instead of reaching out to the lecturers, I retreated into a shell and became disengaged and inactive. Thankfully my personal tutor noticed, reached out and offered extra support. As the months went by, the lecturers poured into me, and I gained more confidence and my grades improved significantly. Unfortunately, tragedy stroke my family and again the university showed up and supported me immensely. I will never forget the emotional supportive email another one of the wonderful lecturers sent to me when I told him what had happened. I believe most universities in the UK can provide students with quality education, but it takes a special kind of dedication and student-centred management to do what Buckingham University Business School did for me when my back was against the wall.” – Kiki
“Whilst I was initially sceptical about conducting my undergraduate studies in Business Management, the University of Buckingham has proved to be the perfect choice for me personally. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the modules which included a combination of stimulating group and individual assessments. Throughout my studies I, with all fellow students have been encouraged to work collaboratively as a team and have embedded ourselves in the diverse culture that forms an integral part of the University, which fosters a sense of community with a common purpose. The ability to complete my desired degree within two years and the smaller sized classes demonstrates Buckingham’s commitment to prioritise student learning. This in particular has transformed my personal development and provided me with the confidence to commit to undertaking a master’s degree at the University of Buckingham, which I would never have thought possible.” – Luke
