Where the University of Buckingham offer the same programme on different campuses, campus allocation will take place at the point of offer and will indicate where the applicant would study.
Applicants can indicate a campus preference but preference and allocation may not always match as allocation is based on availability of spaces at each site.
In the interests of maintaining a balanced number of students at each campus, it may be necessary occasionally to alter the allocated campus when the A-level results are published. In the event of this being necessary, volunteers will be sought in the first instance and any imposed change of campus shall be a last resort.
