University of Buckingham

About the institution

The University of Buckingham is the UK’s only university not reliant on direct support from the government, which means that it isn’t restricted by government funding or student number requirements. Founded by Oxford academics in 1976, Buckingham follows the Oxbridge style of teaching students in small groups and in 2016 was named the University of the Year for Teaching Quality by The Times. Within the university campuses are a number of listed and historical buildings, most notably Prebend House, which dates back to 1610.
