Our Pakistani students
Shahzar Chughtai (Business and Management)
The University of Buckingham is very appealing to students from Pakistan because of the way that the courses are structured, which is very different from what we have back home.
The structure is very ordered and students can very easily adapt to the progression through the degree. The online materials and constant support also make it a brilliant environment to excel in.
