The University of Buckingham

Posted by heo

 Buckingham is the UK’s leading University for Teaching Quality according to the annual Times/Sunday Times rankings – we are consistently ranked 1st in the UK and have a TEF Gold rating. We are also top 5 for staff/student ratios and student experience. We are a non-profit University with a Royal Charter from Queen Elizabeth II. We have welcomed international students for over 40 years with 100+ countries represented on campus in 2019.

·         Buckingham’s two year honours degrees allow students to experience high quality UK University education at a lower cost and with more study focus. Students can complete their Masters in 3 years or a 1+2 foundation+ bachelors’ degree in 3 years.

·         Buckingham enrols students in January and September. Both intakes are still accepting applications direct or via UCAS. The January intake is particularly popular with students and their parents/advisers if they have not secured a place in the UK in September or have been unhappy elsewhere and wish to get their studies back on track. They can start with us in January and graduate before their peers two years later.

·         Buckingham is amongst the UK Universities with the lowest crime in the UK (according to the Complete University Guide annual rankings on this issue)

·         The campus is beautiful and unique, just 60 minutes from central London but in a classic English town setting, halfway between Oxford and Cambridge. We have an accommodation guarantee scheme in place for September and January entry.

·         The University of Buckingham’s Medical School admits students in January each year, including high school graduates. We do not require UKCAT/BMAT and do not have a cap on International student numbers, unlike other UK Universities. We also still accept applications all year round, after the traditional UCAS October UK deadline.

Ursinus College Admission

Did you know that Ursinus College has again been recognized as one of the top liberal arts colleges in the nation by U.S. News and World Report. We rose eight spots in just one year—and 14 spots over the past four years—to come in at no. 82. We were also ranked in the following categories: 

  • Top Innovative College (27)
  • Undergraduate Teaching (51)
  • Best Value Schools
  • Social Mobility 

We’re also a repeat performer on The Princeton Review’s list of top colleges in the country, recognized as one of the best institutions in the northeast and a top green college. These acknowledgements are a testament to our efforts to create an environment of affordable excellence for all, starting with at least $21,000/year, for four years, with top scholarships of $40,000/year for all qualified admitted domestic students.

So what type of students should you send our way? Those who don’t want a big school, but who do want a big experience. Those seeking the same sort of personal attention that earned us the distinction of being named one of the 45 Colleges that Change Lives. With an 11:1 student-to-faculty ratio, faculty and staff will know them by name, and be both mentors and cheerleaders to your students, whether they’re tackling a tough course or testing out a new hobby. If you have any questions about Ursinus, please email us at admission@ursinus.edu.

We understand that students may find it challenging to write their achievements in one page and send it to five different universities on UCAS. For this reason, the University of Leeds has a Personal Statement Guide that holds relevance not just for Leeds, but for applying to any Russell Group university in the United Kingdom. Please feel free to share this guide with your students.
