  • Buckingham is a town in north Buckinghamshire, England, close to the borders of Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire.

University of Buckingham Facts

  • Buckingham is unique. It is the only independent university in the UK with a Royal Charter, and probably the smallest with around 2,700 students (approx 1,600 on campus).
  • Honours degrees are achieved in two intensive years of study. We keep class sizes small, with a student:academic staff ratio of 10.4:1 and the Oxbridge style tutorial groups are often personalised and always exhilarating.
  • The University campus is well known for being one of the most attractive locations in the region. The Great Ouse river, home to much wildlife, winds through the heart of our campus.
  • Much of the 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.
  • In the heart of England, close to London and Oxford, the University of Buckingham specialises in two-year honours degrees. Home to a purpose-built new medical school, the university ranked 1st for student satisfaction for three years’ running and achieved Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework.
  • Independent and not-for-profit, its small class sizes and dedicated personal tutors provide an exceptional learning experience.
