Apply at any time for September

For September you can apply direct to Buckingham any time through our course pages. You can browse all courses in our course finder.

We accept applications via UCAS too. However, if you apply direct you can often secure your place at university ahead of the crowds. We accept applications close to our start dates, although applying early is always best. If you are from abroad looking to study here at Buckingham, you will find more information on our International pages.

You can start one of our accelerated two-year degrees, in September. You can combine this undergraduate degree with a foundation or postgraduate programme, and finish in just three years. We have many exciting subjects to study as a postgraduate starting in September too.

Whichever entry point you choose, you will be part of a whole new student cohort and get to experience induction, Freshers’ Week and the same expert teaching and personal support facilities.

Join the Buckingham community this September

There is a real sense of community at The University of Buckingham, and students are known by their name, not a number.

Every student at Buckingham is assigned a personal tutor: these are members of academic staff who are here to support you from the day you start your course to the day you complete it. You can also speak to our Wellbeing, Skills and Diversity team for other personalised support.

Our Students’ Union are also here to make sure you have the best possible experience at Buckingham. They help students to build friendships, pursue their passions and make lifelong memories. You can get involved by joining one of our many clubs or societies or head out on one of our SU trips for a taste of adventure, shopping or clubbing.
