I did art foundation at bucks and it was the right decision for me however I wouldn't want to stay on any longer than this year. I didn't get involved with any clubs and societies or the union so this is why they are low in starts, even though apparently out student union is one of the best in the country. The facilities are actually really good for art, I just don't particularly feel at home, maybe because this is only a one year course so there isn't much community? The Tutors are very unorganised and trips all seem to be planned really badly. However there are a lot of trips, and if you have a group of friends they are really fun. I would still recommend this uni if you live close by and are just looking for a foundation.
By far the worst Nursing university you could ever go to, no efficient teaching the lectures are all old and past there sell by date. No support with coursework and they will put it under the rug if you make so much as one complaint. its so bad teachers themselves have left as well as student failing or leaving in there accordance.
I studied BSc Social Work at bucks uni, it was the worst experience of my life, the only thing that got me through was my friends and family. No support from any tutor or lecturers, no real structure and the course was delivered in shambles
Attending an aviation course at Buckinghamshire New University (BNU) has ended my career. I am one of around 100 students (past and present) who have suffered at the hands of BNU because of their corrupt relationships with partner organisations. I have uncovered extremely disturbing and burdening truths about this serious matter and therefore I have huge doubts about the legality of current links with BNU's partner organisations!! BNU are reluctant to acknowledge (and apologise for) the very serious mistakes they have made, even though most senior staff at BNU are very aware of such despicable events. I wish to make you aware of such a harrowing experience and I would not wish it upon anybody. I do not want you to suffer as I and many others have. If you want to succeed at your intended career, do not attend BNU! University league tables exist for a reason so please attend one that is much further up the table. I cannot stress that enough! Put simply - avoid at all costs!
Worst year of my life!! *Teachers had their fav students *Building not up for the course *Teachers didn't explain or keep us updated on where each class would be ( when they changed rooms) *Dorms are not worth the money and they are run down * people wasn't that friendly around the uni
Do yourself a service! Have respect for your time and money and steer clear off this place. Stiff mentality and backward thinking lecturers. Very few wonderful lecturers, passionate about their work. Terible place!
Confirmed my place with bucks university in july 2016 to start my course in feb 2017only to find out the previous day that my start date has been changed to september 2017.All necessary arrangements has been made for my start date and this happened...No mail from the uni or ucas to let me know that my start date has been changed.....it is not a good reputation for the university...
I am a fresher at Bucks new university. In my opinoon this uni has excellent teaching. However, the faclities and secutiry are poor. I have experienced students allowing other members of the public (friends/family) to go into the university, simply by handing over their access card when they are not in. Futhermore, there are not many quiet zone areas and, the noise can get very loud.
the lack of a real "campus vibe" lets this place down It is built on a small plot in the centre of the town, re-energising what was previously a public college into a more profitable educational establishment without much work to bring it into the new age. There is a new build which is impressive in a somewhat oddly design. Offering the best facilities, and some interesting courses. The town is not a student town, a lack of
SU is amazing, very helpful and easy to communicate. There are more than enough facilities for students to take advantage of so always ask if unsure or in any doubt. I love my course and I truly recommend this university to students who are dedicated and who are outgoing as uni has sooo much to offer.
Half the campus modern, other half (design half, my course area) very old and dated at the minute. Computers need updating/software updates. Paying a lot of money for materials etc. that were not mentioned when joining the university which would have been nice. Societies need to be advertised more, as well as the SU.
Good University as far as academic views are concerned, great at offering extra qualifications to help progress further in your specific field. Student Union is second to none with a vast array of events happening across the year. Internet within the university cannot be faulted. As far as I am concerned Bucks New Uni should not be where it is on the list.
The campus has a lot of fairly new, decent equipment. The SU is great. Career opportunities, like anywhere, only happen if you make an effort to do more than just turn up and do the work. The Internet is quick enough but can sometimes be a pain to connect to. The uni is a very new one (only about 8 years old) which is why it has quite a low ranking. Don't let that put you off! It's rank is improving every year, as is the uni itself.
Bucks is the only uni to provide the Big Deal, which gives students so many great free things including trips to alton towers, all club nights at su are free, a course package worth £1000 a year per student, free spirts and societies and so much more
Nursing is at the Uxbridge campus which has absolutely nothing! The SU is in High Wycombe (a good 25 min drive away) My personal job opportunities are good due to my course being NHS funded but i don't know what generic courses are like! Wifi is rubbish at the Uxbridge campus! Just a generally crap university although I'm lucky to have good friends!
