Buckinghamshire New University features in the top 30 universities throughout the UK for its graduate salary and was also nominated in three categories of the Prospects Postgraduate Awards 2014.
First opened as a School of Science and Art in 1891, Buckinghamshire New University (BNU) has over 130 years of teaching history.
The uni is spread across three campuses, High Wycombe, Uxbridge and Aylesbury. High Wycombe is the main campus and is home to a range of high-end facilities, like art and design workspaces, an aviation simulator, film and TV studios, and a gym. The Uxbridge campus is dedicated to healthcare, while the Aylesbury site is home to students on courses including business, law and computing.
As a student at BNU, you’ll get access to free sport and societies through the Students’ Union Big Deal scheme. This will allow you to join clubs and play sports, as well as enjoy several free bar and club events throughout the year. A counselling service is also available to students on all campuses and mental health awareness events are run regularly by the uni and the Students’ Union.
A free bus service runs between High Wycombe and Uxbridge, meaning students can get between campuses easily. In High Wycombe, you’ll find a good range of bars, pubs, restaurants and shopping opportunities, as well as surrounding countryside and local markets.
