Tell us about your overall university experience so far.
It has been a great experience. As there are relatively fewer people in the course as opposed to other Universities, each student is well known by the lecturers. The staff are very friendly and supportive. I would definitely recommend the University of Buckingham.
How does your uni make efforts to increase your employability (careers department, work placements, transferable skills)?
They have career support and hold workshops on how to prepare to apply for work.
Course and Lecturers
What do you like most and least about the way your course(s) are taught?
Tutorials and workshops are very nice and hands-on which helps re-enforce what is taught in the lectures. The small class size helps everyone get involved.
Could make lectures more interactive.
What do you think of your Students' Union in terms of student representation and facilities?
They promote events happening every week.
What do you think about the safety, condition, location and cost of your accommodation?
It is very safe and well maintained. Kitchens, toilets and shower rooms are cleaned every day during the weekdays.
How good are your university's facilities?
It is pretty decent. All the required software is installed on the University Computers.
Is your university in a good location in terms of distance to accommodation and local amenities?
It is in a good location. The town centre was around 10/15 minutes by walk. It was a 30 minutes bus ride to go to Milton Keynes.
Societies and Sports
How would you rate the variety of societies/sports?
They are good but it could do better with having a bit more variety of societies. As the University is relatively small, not many people get involved.
How good is the support offered by the uni? Think both academic (tutors/feedback) and personal (counselling, etc).
Staff are very friendly and have an open-door policy which has been very helpful.
Personal support has been great too.
