The University of Buckingham holds a unique position in UK Higher Education. As the first independent university in the UK to receive a Royal Charter, we have the freedom to be distinctive and put our students first. Our pioneering two-year degree, enables you to get a full honours undergraduate degree one year earlier than many traditional three-year university courses.
We also opened the UK’s first independent Medical School, which aims to produce highly ethical, honest and compassionate doctors who will put the patient first.
Studying at Buckingham is a personalised learning experience. Our small-group tutorial system and exceptional pastoral care means that you will develop in a supportive environment.
Why Choose Buckingham?
- Two-Year degrees: Complete your honours degree in two years.
- 1st in the UK for Teaching Excellence (The Times Higher Education metrics ranking, 2017).
- Small class sizes: Top 4 in the UK for Student-Staff Ratio (The Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019).
- Satisfied students: 1st in the UK for Student Satisfaction 2017, 2018 and 2019
The teaching at Buckingham is based around our unique tutorial teaching model. For every module of your course, and every week of your degree, you will have a Buckingham tutorial.
Tutorials are in addition to lectures and seminars (which are normally with your whole class). The tutorials vary in size depending upon the subject you are studying, but consist of between five and eight students and a tutor. This means that, at Buckingham, you get quality contact time with our staff.
The Buckingham tutorial ensures that you are not just a face in the crowd, but that your tutors get to know who you are and what you are about. This means that when they come to write references for your postgraduate study and employment, they know you well and can easily and accurately talk about your strengths.
In addition to the academic support provided in Buckingham tutorials, they also enable students to develop transferable skills, particularly those involving critical thinking and communication.
Our tutorials encourage students to ask questions and engage in debate and discussion about their degree subject. We believe that this is the single most important reason why Buckingham is rated highly for Student Satisfaction (National Student Survey 2006-present), and Teaching Excellence (The Times Higher Education metrics ranking).
