University of Buckingham Graduate Masters Programs

Buckingham is unique. It is the only independent university in the UK with a Royal Charter, and probably the smallest with around 1000 students. Honours degrees are achieved in two intensive years of study. We keep class sizes small, with a student:academic staff ratio of 8:1 and the Oxbridge style tutorial groups are often personalised and always exhilarating.

The University campus is well known for being one of the most attractive locations in the region. The Great Ouse river, home to much wildlife, winds through the heart of our campus. Much of our teaching takes place in our restored buildings such as the Franciscan Building, formerly a friary, and, Chandos Road Building, a converted turn-of-the-century milk factory, while students can also enjoy the Hunter Street Library, once military barracks.

Each student mixes with 89 other different nationalities and so being at Buckingham is just like being in a mini global village. These contacts, acquaintances and friendships, carry on long after life at Buckingham is over. Our graduates find jobs all over the world, and the friendships they make here go a long way to broadening their experience and to giving them links that, possibly, no other university can do at such an intense level.

    - Department of Education

    The Department of Education exists to promote teacher training and research in education. It is strongly committed to the view that the training of teachers is best based in practical work in good schools, supplemented by relevant academic input into the philosophy and practice of education.

    Education is primarily about the transmission of the best that has been thought and known, to those as yet ignorant of these things. The Department of Education believes that the best way of achieving this end is through a multiplicity of provision, rather than education being a monopoly of the state or its agencies.

    A further focus of work in the Department is that educational provision itself should be strongly diversified to cater for the different needs of different pupils. Robust debate on these and other topics in education is strongly encouraged.

    - English

    The English Department is ranked in the top ten university departments nationally, coming 18th out of the 102 English departments at UK universities in the Guardian University Guide 2014. It is a friendly place to study, where students are directly taught by our specialists in Literature, Language, and Journalism, taking advantage of the excellent research culture of the department.

    If you have a question before applying or would like to arrange a campus visit, please contact English Admissions. For more general English Department enquires, please contact the Department Secretary.

    The Department offers Creative Writing courses which are available to outside students on a one-off basis.

    One of the many reasons for studying a degree in English is to become a first-rate writer, whether for intellectual, creative, or professional purposes. Few write good prose. We encourage all our students to become professional-level writers. See our Writing Guide (PDF file of 226 KB), which is useful for those still at school. For help with your GCSE and AS-level work, see Resources for Schools. Students at all levels will benefit from the excellent suite of advice pages offered by the Royal Literary Fund.

    - History & Art History

    Studying the Humanities is sometimes falsely characterised as a type of indulgence – ‘consumption’ in the language of economists rather than ‘investment’. Even by the narrowly utilitarian standards of modern discourse, however, this view is mistaken. The market rate of return to a trained and ‘humane mind’ is probably much higher than is commonly supposed. The skills developed from studying the humanities – clarity and precision of language, knowledge of cultural evolution and historical change, the ability to communicate with others and to construct clear lines of argument – are of the greatest importance for all kinds of worldly success. “The light of all humane minds is perspicuous words”, asserted Thomas Hobbes. The development of “humane minds” remains the ultimate objective of Buckingham’s School of Humanities; but, where appropriate, assisting students to pursue their future career goals is also of central importance.

    The School of Humanities has the largest number of students of all the schools at Buckingham, and spreads across the widest range of subjects from Economics to Literature, Military History and Decorative Arts. If you have ever considered studying an Arts or Economics degree, with small group teaching, students from around 80 countries, and flexible study options, then follow the links on the left for more information.

    - Law School

    Like the rest of the University, Buckingham Law School prides itself on two key features, Student Satisfaction and Employability. The headline above from “Lawyer 2B” highlights our Guardian League Table position on Employability. You can see this table for yourself at www.theguardian.com/education/table/2013/jun/04/university-guide-law

    Two other elements underpin this success:

    - Our intensive degrees, completing a 3 year qualifying law degree in 2 years and an LLM in a further 9 months; this certainly impresses future employers; and
    - Our highly qualified and experienced academic staff, over 25 in number, all of who teach and give personal guidance to our 400 or so students.

    Indeed this could all be expressed in a formula:

    Time = Intensity
    Staff = Attention
    Intensity + Attention = Employability

    And on the subject of Employability, despite the School being under 40 years old, our alumni have already occupied a remarkable range of posts from local solicitors, barristers and business owner / managers to Judges, Attorneys-General, Ministers of Justice and of Human Rights and even a Head of a Civil Service around the world.
