Profile

Overview

Founded in 1976, the University of Buckingham holds a unique position in Higher Education in the United Kingdom. Like other traditional universities, Buckingham is a non-profit making charity; we have a Royal Charter which allows us to award our own degrees and to validate the teaching of Buckingham degrees across the world. But unlike other universities, we operate independently of the state sector, which gives us the freedom to choose our own path and to focus on the needs of our students.

Why Choose Buckingham?

  • We’re top for Teaching Quality*
  • We’re top for Student Experience*
  • We’re top for Student-Staff Ratio*

*In The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017

Quality teaching
Teaching is carried out through a combination of lectures supported by seminars and small-group tutorials.

A key feature of the Buckingham teaching method is the use of small tutorial groups which provide the most effective means of ensuring that the students benefit from the academic expertise at their disposal. It is also the philosophy of Buckingham’s faculty to be available to students outside the scheduled tutorial times and to encourage good working relationships between staff and students.

Buckingham has pioneered the two-year honours degree. Studying for two years at Buckingham allows you to gain an equivalent degree to one achieved in three years elsewhere. This is made possible by our restructuring of the academic year to provide an additional term each summer. So you fit in the same number of teaching weeks as on a conventional three-year programme, but your work-load in any term is no greater. Buckingham is not a ‘crammer’ and we don’t cut corners.
