Studying at Buckinghamshire New University

Buckinghamshire New University is mainly situated in High Wycombe with nursing programmes carried out on the Uxbridge campus. The university is home to 9,000 students and has a Fairtrade status.

The Big Deal aims to support students with providing free entertainment, sports and recreational activities such as trying new activities, listening to guest speakers and giving things a go that you wouldn't have otherwise, such as Thai cooking, DJing, languages, first aid, day trips and trying your hand at car mechanics. As well as learning something new, The Big Deal hopes that new friendships and confidence will be built and the student experience will be unforgettable.

The Students' Union provides plenty of social events, parties and theme nights over the year and have hosted big names such as Annie Mac, Chipmunk, N-Dubz, and Example. There are more than 20 sports clubs and 42 societies to have a go at for no cost at all due to the Big Deal Initiative. There are also plenty of ways to earn money by working for the Students' Union ], by being a Student Ambassador promoting the university or a Student Rep seeking to improve the quality of teaching programmes and being the voice to represent the views of other students.

Student media includes 'The Bucks Student' newspaper, website and social media and offers plenty of opportunities to get involved with writing, graphics and design and at the same time it's a great skill to add to your CV. Another way to get something back from investing your time is through volunteering. There are plenty of projects to take part in with varying commitment levels from conservation work and clean-up projects to working in a school and helping disabled people. RAG (Raise and Give) is a well known time for having fun and raising money for charity doing things such as sponsored car washes and themed days.



The Athletics Union gives plenty of opportunities to students to get involved in many different sports, and as with all other activities at Buckinghamshire New University, it's all free, including travel to matches and bits of kit and coaching. The only thing that students pay for is gym membership and sports qualifications.

Buckinghamshire New University offers a great student experience on campus and for those that like to get out and about it is ideally situated near to London, Bath and Oxford and for those who want to be more adventurous, it’s only half an hour from heathrow Airport.

Bucks is a good uni for certain courses. Its not in a good location but tries its best to change that. Course is very focused getting you ready for the industry. Though sometimes lecturers are not the best.

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.

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!

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.
