UCAS applications

You may apply either through the national UCAS university admissions system or at any time directly to the University using our own online application form.

Mature students

Because of our two-year degree, we find that the age range of our student body varies between those who have recently completed A-levels (or equivalent) to more mature students. Age is no barrier to learning and we welcome all applications from suitably qualified students. We can be particularly flexible in cases where work experience or a career has motivated an applicant to enter or return to higher education.

International students

We are happy to consider all international applications and if you are an international student, you may find it useful to visit our international pages for details of entry requirements from your home country.

The University is a UKVI Tier 4 Sponsor.

English levels

If English is not your first language, please check our undergraduate English language requirements. If your English levels don’t meet our minimum requirements, you may be interested in applying for our Pre-sessional English Language Foundation Programmes.

Credit transfer

If you already have a Foundation Degree or Undergraduate Diploma (240 credits, with at least 120 at Second Year Level 5) and wish to continue your studies to complete a BA Honours in Art History (requiring 120 credits at Final Year Level 6), you may apply to Buckingham to study full-time or part-time.

Students who have successfully completed an Undergraduate Certificate (120 credits at First Year Level 4) can also be considered for transfer to the Buckingham BA Honours Programme.

Selection process

Wherever possible, you will be invited to the University to meet the Admissions Tutor for an informal interview and to have a tour of our campus. If you are an international applicant, it may not be possible for you to visit in person, so if the Admissions Tutor has any queries about your application you may be conducted by Skype, email or phone.

We welcome enquiries from potential applicants, so please contact the University’s Admissions Office if you want to know more about our programmes or have an admissions enquiry. Our chief concern is that you should find the degree which will help you achieve your potential.
