Welcome to the University of Buckingham

Buckingham & Malaysia

The University of Buckingham currently does not travel to Malaysia for recruitment. The International Office would like to develop more in this market and the University would be delighted to see more Malaysian 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.

What our students say

Sanjeet Sidhu, studying LLB Law

The University offers a great advantage by having small groups for tutorials. This advantage creates an opportunity for students to interact with tutors who are experienced and renowned in their fields. My tutors have made me think outside of the box as well as understand the principle behind the rule of law. It is great fun when students are challenged by tutors and comrades to prove their opinion with the backing of legal principle.

In addition, the University has a vast range of students with different nationality and I have had the privilege of knowing, interacting and learning with different people from different cultures. As a Malaysian, it was not hard for me to adapt to this new environment as Malaysia is a multicultural country.

My experience as a Law student at Buckingham has been unique. Every moment here I hold dear to my heart.

What our alumni say

Shanaz A Muztaza (LLB Law, 2006)

Shanaz Muztaza read Law and graduated with Merit Prize in 2005 before being called to the English Bar (Inner Temple). Having wistfully seen many of her fellow counterparts working for private practice, she has recently been admitted as solicitor to the Supreme Court of England and Wales. She is a candidate sitting for the New York State Bar examination and will be admitted into the Malaysian Bar by 2013.

Before working for Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP in their litigation and international arbitration practice, she worked at leading in-house and magic circle firms.  Her current work is predominantly on multi-jurisdictional commercial, regulatory, banking and public law disputes – cases ranges from high octane Madoff-related claims to customary breach of contract for defective goods. Undoubtedly, it is a genuine privilege to work with exceptional lawyers and an incredible learning experience to be part of a new team which intends to grow its dispute capability in London.

Like every other alumni, there’s much blood, sweat and tears before she gets where she is right now. She emphasised that there is still much to be done and learnt but the University of Buckingham has provided a solid foundation for her to feel confident about herself and pursuing her ideas. Proven time and time again, she was able seek help and advice from the Law faculty because thanks to Buckingham’s small classes, they were able to connect with their former students and be generous with their time.
