University of Buckingham - Crewe Campus

Crewe Green Road, Crewe, North West, United Kingdom | Private University | Established 1973

About us

The University of Buckingham is the only independent university in the UK with a Royal Charter, and probably the smallest with around 2,700 students. Honors degrees are achieved in two intensive years of study. We keep class sizes small, with a student: academic staff ratio of 10.4:1, and the Oxbridge style tutorial groups are often personalized and always exhilarating. The real basis of the University of Buckingham’s success has been its staff and, above all, students. Those who will graduate this year follow in a distinguished line and they and their successors will carry the reputation of the University to even greater heights.

The University of Buckingham has, in partnership with Apollo Hospitals Group, acquired the former Manchester Metropolitan University’s campus at Crewe. Crewe, close to both Liverpool and Manchester, is home to a range of allied health courses, including medicine (also taught in Buckingham), podiatry, biomedical science, and postgraduate medicine. Our new Health Sciences Campus is well connected to the nearby town of Crewe, with a bus service running regularly to the center and train station. The student accommodation is just a five-minute walk from your lecture theatres.

Building on the Buckingham ethos of putting the student first and above all else, our medical school is small enough for our students to be part of a coherent and supportive community, and large enough to provide all the experience you need to become a medical practitioner.

Why the University of Buckingham - Crewe Campus

2-Year Bachelor's Degree: We created our two-year degrees by adding an extra term each summer. This means you can fit in the same number of teaching weeks as a traditional three-year degree without your workload getting any bigger. You could even choose to continue onto a master’s program, finishing both an undergraduate and a master’s degree in only three years.

Culture: Each student mixes with over 100 other different nationalities and so being at Buckingham is just like being in a mini global village. These contacts, acquaintances, and friendships, carry on a long afterlife at Buckingham are over.

Values: From the start, Buckingham was different. The founders of the University were driven by a desire to cultivate an institution that was rigorously independent in its thinking; while this ethos remains, it has been supplemented by an emphasis on developing and delivering academic provision that is distinctive and distinguished and a student experience that is supported and strengthened by positive psychology (the Positive University).

Small-Group Teaching: Small group teaching is a hallmark of our University. We believe that when you are stretching your learning boundaries, you’ll find it helpful to have regular and meaningful interaction with the academics who are leading your studies. The University prides itself on being a small and friendly environment to study, live, and work, and with around 2,700 students (approx 1,600 on campus) – you won’t get lost in a lecture class of 300 students, nor will you be 50th in line for borrowing a particular book from the library.

Health and Wellbeing: Recognising the importance of mental health and wellbeing to academic success, the new campus will include a wellness center for both students and staff.
