Why choose Buckingham?
Home of the two-year degree, the University of Buckingham, based in the South East of England, is ranked 1st for Teaching Excellence in the UK. We are proudly independent and not-for-profit, and offer courses in Allied Health, Business, Computing, Education, Humanities, Law, Medicine, Psychology and Security and Intelligence. We are one of the few universities in the UK that offer September and January start dates for almost all of our courses.
Based in Buckingham on a riverside campus, we are only 20 minutes’ from Milton Keynes central station and a short drive from Bicester, Aylesbury, Banbury and Northampton. There is free parking on-site and we are within easy reach of London and Oxford.
Our award-winning small class tutorials ensure every student is known by name and supported throughout their studies, including by dedicated personal tutors.
As pioneers of the two-year degree, we offer a condensed version of the traditional three-year degree, meaning you can gain a full honours degree and complete your studies a whole year earlier. Alternatively, you can complete both your undergraduate and master’s degree with us in just three years: saving you time and money.
We also launched the UK’s first private Medical School, which recently secured General Medical Council (GMC) accreditation. The GMC commended us for our ‘excellent professional, academic and pastoral support that extends throughout the University and clinical learning environments’.
The University’s dedication to teaching quality and student life has resulted in it being rated highly by its students and in national surveys. This includes being ranked 1st for Student Satisfaction for three years running
