University of the Year for Teaching – University of Buckingham

The University of Buckingham is one of the leading universities in the United Kingdom. Buckingham has been leading the National Student Survey for student satisfaction since 2006. The University is ranked no.1 for graduate prospects, above all other universities in the UK. The Higher Education Statistics Agency found that 98.1% of graduates were in further education or graduate-level employment six months after leaving Buckingham (HESA July 2015).

The University of Buckingham is very proud to be The Times and The Sunday Times 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.

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 undergraduate 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.”
