University of Buckingham

The University of Buckingham  is one of Britain’s first independent universities: a home for original, aspiring students. The University is proudly independent and committed to the pursuit of truth and freedom of speech.


Since its inception more than 40 years ago, the University is renowned for being innovative and entrepreneurial, consistently influencing the course of mainstream Higher Education in the UK.


It was the first to charge fees, welcome international students, launch a two-year degree course, embrace the free market in higher education and open an independent medical school.
