Frequently Asked Questions

A degree in two years instead of three?

That’s right. At the University of Buckingham we’ve been delivering two-year degrees for over 40 years. Students love the idea that they can get into work up to a year earlier and save on a whole year of living costs.

Is the teaching as good as a three year degree?

Yes! Buckingham is a teaching-led university, with excellent student:staff ratio. We offer Oxbridge-style small-group tutorials that are personal, dynamic and intellectually stimulating. This is reflected in our top rankings for teaching quality and student experience.

How does it work?

At Buckingham, we’ve compressed the timetable so that you have 40 weeks of study, and a good 12 weeks of downtime – about the same as standard school holidays. Most universities offer three year degrees, with each year consisting of around 29 weeks of study and 23 weeks of holiday.

If you start in our January intake, you will finish in 2 years, while September entry takes 2 years plus 1 term – still quicker than a standard degree. Some of our courses also offer a traditional 3 year option.
