Why choose Buckingham?
We believe in a high-quality education delivered with passion and focus on imparting useful and relevant knowledge. We also offer students the opportunity to study a degree their way, giving a range of options on how to study, and September and January start dates for almost all of our courses.
The University of Buckingham is ranked 2nd for Graduate Prospects (On Track) in the UK. At Buckingham, you’ll be taught by experts who are internationally recognised as pioneers in their field – so you’ll graduate with the latest industry knowledge.
Buckingham is surrounded by green spaces, and our riverside campus is the ideal backdrop for your studies. You can get the best of both worlds; you are never far from a city. Milton Keynes is a 20-minute drive away and offers plenty to do. You could even jump on a fast train to explore many big cities.
The Good University Guide 2022 ranked us in the top 10 in the UK for Teaching Quality. We keep class sizes small, so you won’t get lost in the crowd. You will be assigned a personal tutor to support you every step of the way, and our academic and student support teams will ensure you have the tools to succeed in your studies.
We also offer the option of two-year degrees, a condensed version of the traditional three-year degree, meaning you can gain a full honours degree, but graduate 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.
Our dedication to teaching quality and student life has resulted in us being rated highly by our students and in national surveys. We are proud that the Good University Guide 2023 ranked us top 10 in the UK for Student Satisfaction. Nothing is more important to us than happy students.
