University of Buckingham


The University of Buckingham is one of the UK’s leading universities. It has been at the forefront of the National Student Survey for student satisfaction since 2006 and again was top in 2016.

In The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017 the University of Buckingham is very proud to once again be the University of the Year for Teaching Quality. At a time when there is such concern about the quality of teaching at our universities, there is no accolade more important than this. It was also first for Student Experience and Student-Staff Ratio.

The University was the first UK university to offer the academic content of a standard 3-year degree as a 2-year programme, running over four terms each year. The JIBS degree also follows this efficient structure, allowing our students to complete a Master’s degree in a third year of study or progress into the world of work 12 months before their peers.

National Student Survey

Buckingham is proud to have been top or near top of the National Student Survey (NSS) in student satisfaction since 2006.

The NSS provides all final-year undergraduate students in UK higher education institutions and further education colleges with the opportunity to express their opinions on what they liked during their time at university.

Sir Anthony Seldon, the new Vice-Chancellor of the University of Buckingham, said: “We are delighted to be leading the National Student Survey once again for student satisfaction. Our high staff student ratio and open door policy results in students at the University of Buckingham getting all the help they need from tutors and enjoying the many benefits of small Oxbridge-style tutorial groups.”
