Why study at Buckingham? Global campus, global outlook

We’re delighted that you’re thinking about studying at Buckingham. With only around 3,000 students, our landmark small-group tutorials and one of the safest campuses in the UK, you will feel right at home here. We welcome students from all around the world, with more than 100 nations represented in our student body. We’ve found European students particularly value our tutorial model, where students learn in small groups and are individually supported by a Personal Tutor to ensure they reach their potential.

Student experience

We value our students’ experience above all else, which is why we have ranked at or near the top of the UK’s National Student Survey for Student Satisfaction since 2006.


We neighbour the Cotswolds and are surrounded by lush English countryside (for hiking, biking or camping), but are only a short trip from Oxford and London.

Personalised learning

With personal tutors, small class sizes and a family-like community at Buckingham, we support each student individually to ensure they achieve their best.

How to apply

We accept applications year-round for our undergraduate and postgraduate courses and you can apply directly to us via our course pages. We have two major intakes per year, in January and September. We also offer flexible intake points for some of our postgraduate courses. Email our friendly recruitment team any time on if you any questions.

Joining the Buckingham community

There is a real sense of community at The University of Buckingham, and students are genuinely known by their name, not a number. Through our network of experienced academics, students will get to know their tutors, lecturers, supervisors and/or personal tutors and can access Students First (our student welfare team) for any additional support.

Our Students’ Union plays a key part in our students’ lives, helping every student build friendships, pursue their passions and make lifelong memories. You can get involved by joining one of our many clubs or societies or head out on one of our SU trips for a taste of adventure, shopping or clubbing.

The SU hosts a whole variety of events, including ones run by our cultural and country-specific societies, as well as ones that celebrate our diverse campus, like international food day. Not only are there are lots of events, societies and groups designed to help you feel more at home, you can also set up your own club or society with the support of the SU.
