Cream of the crop – Buckingham ranked in UK top ten

21 September 2018

The University of Buckingham has ranked in the UK top ten for Teaching Excellence and Student Experience in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide.

The University’s strength in student satisfaction has been a major factor in this year’s ranking success and follows Buckingham’s placing at the top in the National Student Survey (NSS) in England for Overall Student Satisfaction. The University is also ranked in the top quarter for Graduate Prospects.

Ranked eighth for both Teaching Excellence and Student Experience, Buckingham is once again leading the way in key areas of the University league tables.

Buckingham has risen four places in the rankings this year, and has come 43rd overall, in the top third of Britain’s university sector, which underlines high standards in every area of learning.

The University consistently does well in rankings because of its optimal staff-student ratios, excellent quality of teaching and the open door policy of lecturers which enables students to seek help whenever they need it.

Sir Anthony Seldon, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Buckingham, said: “This bears out what our students tell us – they love studying at Buckingham because they are not lost in the crowd – they get all the help they need and find it to be a nurturing environment because of our excellent staff-to-student ratios. We are lucky to have such professional teaching staff who can offer the highest quality teaching.

“Graduate Prospects at Buckingham are strong – another reason why an increasing number of students are choosing to save time and save money by studying a two-year degree at Buckingham.”

Buckingham is also rated one of the safest campuses by The Complete University Guide and ranked top for free speech by Spiked website.
