Buckinghamshire New University

Buckinghamshire New University is a future-thinking university, where education meets employability. Every degree they offer incorporates a hybrid-learning process where students learn through traditional classroom lessons and hands-on practice. Their lecturers have a wide range of industry-experience and relevant knowledge. This, coupled with an open, diverse and friendly student community, not only makes Buckinghamshire New University an inspiring and supportive place to study but also the No.1 in England for Student Satisfaction* (NSS 2023).

BNU’s young outlook and reputable industry presence allows them to specialise and deliver a range of high quality and professionally-driven courses in a array of fields, from Nursing and Psychology, to Aviation, Art & Design, Business and Creative Media. 

Students at BNU are able to access the University’s industry connections to gain real-world experience and grow their knowledge and skills to be job-ready once they graduate. The University’s strong focus on employability and career-focused courses saw them ranked as one of the topinstitutions in the UK for employability, with 96% of BNU graduates in employment, conducting further study, volunteering, travelling, or caring for others 15 months after graduating (HESA 2023). 

Their campuses are based in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire; Uxbridge, West London; Aylesbury Vale, Missenden Abbey, Great Missenden; and Pinewood Studios, Slough. With an investment of £19 million being made in their campuses, facilities and technologies this year, students can look forward to discovering a well-equipped place to study and develop their potential.

BNU has three comfortable halls of residence in High Wycombe, which are open to students studying across all campuses, and are the second cheapest halls in the South East of England.** BNU can also guarantee accommodation in halls for all new BNU students.***
