Bang for your Bucks

September 5, 2013

Times Higher Education’s international and postgraduate student fees survey (8 August) lists the University of Buckingham as charging the most in the UK for domestic and European Union undergraduates. However, it does not show that Buckingham’s degree courses run for two years rather than the usual three, so in fact (especially if living costs are considered) the university is actually the most cost-effective in the UK.

Employers look favourably on graduates who have qualified in just two years, something borne out by Buckingham being ranked top in the country for graduate prospects according to Higher Education Statistics Agency data. Further, our cost-efficiency is socially inclusive.
