Buckingham was founded in 1976 by a group of Oxford academics who despaired of the way the other British universities were going. The other universities are all funded by the state but Buckingham University remains unique because, unlike other UK Universities, they do not receive direct subsidy from the Government and so avoid associated regulatory interference.

Key features of The University of Buckingham:

    2-year Bachelors degrees

As many weeks (about 90) of academic content as a 3-year degree in other universities, but offered through a 'fast-track' system
