Will I be successful at Buckingham?

  • Everyone is focussed on helping you succeed
  • Services to support you when you need it

When you’re thinking about going to university, it’s natural to feel anxious about whether you’ll fit in, whether you’ll be able to keep up with your studies and whether you’ll be successful in graduating with the degree you’ve always dreamed of.

But rest assured, we’ve seen thousands of students going through the occasional wobble and we’ve also seen many more thousands go on to achieve success, graduate on their big day and then find a fulfilling and successful career. We’re here for you from start to finish – everyone here wants to see you succeed and there’s lots of support available.

Check out the ‘Life’ section for all the information your need.

Student Welfare

Our friendly Student Welfare team have, between them, seen it all. They know what you’re going through and are always available to help you through a problem whether it’s financial, personal or health related. Or sometimes, you just need a chat with someone who understands. That’s what we’re here for.

Student Accommodation

We know how important accommodation is for you – whether you live in university accommodation or rent in the town. Our accommodation pages set out all your options and the costs so you can take your pick and suit your budget. If you need help, just drop in to the accommodation office at 17 Hunter Street.

Students’ Union

And do take a look at the Student Union pages. Here you’ll find out about everything that students (supported by the university) organise for themselves. As well as a fully equipped on-campus gym and an array of team and leisure sports, there are societies for national and religious groups, hobbies, politics and much more.

Careers Service

And finally, our Careers Service. The University is proud of its graduate employment record. We want your degree to support you in achieving your career goals so we have a range of careers information, support and advice available.

Tutorial and small group teaching

You are mostly taught in small groups and tutorials to ensure your success. Find out more about our fantastic student:staff ratio.

Remember, we are all focussed on helping you succeed!
