University of Buckingham

Buckingham | South East England

Town Campus

Ucas code: B90

The University of Buckingham was the first independent university in the UK to receive a Royal Charter, and this status has given us the freedom to be distinctive and put our students first. For example, Buckingham pioneered the two-year honours degree, and opened the UK’s first independent Medical School. We provide our students with a personalised learning experience, with our small-group tutorial system and exceptional pastoral care.
