Buckingham New University

A new university with well-established connections to industry

Bucks New University, which celebrated its 125th Anniversary in 2017, achieved university status in 2007 and offers courses linked to the creative and cultural industries, the management and information management sectors and the public sector.

It has several non-profit research centres and institutes and is proud of its long-standing partnerships with industry, the public sector and charitable organisations. These include Thames Valley Police, several NHS Trusts and Sennheiser, the audio specialists.

The University has research and innovation expertise that is recognised via the 2014 Research Excellence Framework assessment and its record of successful bids to UK and international funders. It is an active partner in two Academic Health Science Networks, supporting innovations in patient care and well-being. Key areas of activity are nursing and allied health, creative and cultural industries, design, business and management, psychology and social policy.

 

University Campus Aylesbury Vale, a purpose-built campus providing degree-level courses and professional development programmes, is a partnership between Bucks New University and Aylesbury College. It is currently in the process of creating a new centre to support start-up businesses in the digital sector, where enterprises will be able to get advice, support and space to help them grow and thrive. Facilities at the Digital Innovation Hub will include a cyber-security suite and a virtual reality engineering design studio, designed to raise the skill levels of employees and inspire the region’s young people to consider careers in STEM subjects.
