University of Buckingham
About us

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 (approximately 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 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.
