Home of the two-year degree, The University of Buckingham is ranked 1st for Teaching Excellence in the UK*. Close to London and Oxford, we offer courses in Medicine, Psychology, Law, Business, Computing, Education and Humanities. The University was established via a Royal Charter and places students at the heart of the learning experience. With Oxbridge-style tutorials, we keep class sizes small to ensure every student can thrive here. Buckingham is also ranked 1st in England for Student Satisfaction (The Complete University Guide).
*Teaching Excellence Framework: The Times Higher Education metrics rankings, 2017
Our staff: student ratio is currently 1:10.4. This ensures that classes and tutorials remain small. Buckingham's Oxbridge-style tutorial classes will rarely have more than 8 students in them, and only a few of our lectures feature more than 30 students. Not only do we not delegate our academic teaching to postgraduate students, but our academic faculty remain on campus throughout the working day, ensuring that students are free to seek academic support outside classroom hours.
The University campus is well known for being one of the most attractive locations in the region. The Great Ouse river, winds through the heart of our campus. Much of our teaching takes place in our restored buildings such as the Franciscan Building, formerly a friary, and, Chandos Road Building, a converted turn-of-the-century milk factory, while students can also enjoy the Hunter Street Library, once military barracks.
Each student mixes with over 90 different nationalities and so being at Buckingham is just like being in a mini global village. These contacts, acquaintances and friendships, carry on long after life at Buckingham is over. Our graduates find jobs all over the world, and the friendships they make here go a long way to broadening their experience and to giving them links that, possibly, no other university can do at such an intense level.
Students are required to live in or around Buckingham during term time and, unlike some universities, we are able to guarantee accommodation for all new students for their first four terms of study (providing you have booked and paid for your accommodation within the required timescale). Our safe and beautiful university is small enough for everything to be within walking distance. Study & lecture rooms, the library, computers, social facilities and accommodation are all just a short walk from each other.
Here at Buckingham Business School, we always put our students first. Our degrees are tailored to give students a global, ‘real world’ perspective and are highly regarded throughout the world.

We are constantly striving to provide the best possible education and experience for our students and to give you the best start in your business career. We pride ourselves in the personalised and small group teaching approach so you won’t get lost in a crowd. At the Buckingham Business School, you are a person, not a number.
