Home of the two-year degree

You can get your undergraduate degree in two years instead of the usual three! We pioneered the accelerated degree, and have been offering two-year degrees for over 40 years. So you know you’ll get the full degree experience, just faster.

Benefits of studying a two-year degree:

  • Complete your degree and start work or further study a year earlier
  • Save one year of living expenses

You can start your degree in September or January – most universities only offer September entry.

Top for teaching quality

Our student-to-staff ratio and traditional Oxbridge-style interactive teaching in groups of six to eight means that teachers will get to know you as an individual. You won’t get lost in a lecture of 300 students, or be 50th in line for borrowing a book from the library.

Ranked first in the UK for our teaching quality by TEF, our high-quality small group teaching is a hallmark of the University of Buckingham. You’ll have regular access to the academic experts in your field which isn’t always available at larger universities.
