Bucks New University is a friendly, vibrant place to study. It has over 125 years experience of providing employer-lead higher education, having started out in 1891, running evening classes for the local community and retraining soldiers into new employment.

Today, the university still focuses heavily on employability, with courses which blend together academic teaching with professional and practical elements. There is an on-going commitment to investing in industry-standard facilities as well as tutors who have a track record in business and professional insight.

Bucks is proud to be recognized for creating a supportive learning community with small class sizes, highly interactive teaching and focused employment-related studies and has earned a Silver Award in this year’s Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).

Central London is easily reached from the university’s three campuses in High Wycombe, Uxbridge and Aylesbury.
