Buckingham & Japan

The University of Buckingham has always been attractive to Japanese students. Buckingham offers the chance for students to study a three-year degree in two years. Don’t worry, even though the degree is completed a year earlier it still receives the same recognition as a three-year degree. The University also provides a wide range of programmes in Business, Law, English, History and Psychology just to name a few!

The grades listed above give an indication of a typical offer, at the Admissions Tutor’s discretion. The University of Buckingham prides itself on a flexible entry process, considering each individual on personal merit and on more than just grades. Applicants may also be invited to interview.


We work closely with counsellors and overseas representatives who can advise you on how to apply for your degree as well as in completing your visa application.

You are not obliged to make an application through an agent but we strongly recommend that you consult with them if you require a visa counselling service. The International Office may be able to assist you with your application and let you know what documentation you need to prepare but are unable to offer advice on visas.
