            2011-2013, Bachelor of Laws (LLB)

            Buckingham although very small has so much to offer and i had the pleasure of experiencing this myself. A two year course in the area of law was the best deicison i had made. It sounded difficult at first, but with the help and support of all the staff and facilities at Buckingham they made it a breeze. Buckingham provides a great balance of lecture, tutor and private study times as well as offering wide extra cirricular opportunities such as mooting, negotiations and debating which kept us on our toes and prepared us for our future careers.

            An global community in a quaint environment to study in. What more can one ask in additional to a fast track university programme.

          • Testimony
            1985-1987, LL.B

            I love Buckingham for many reasons. The small class sizes really helped and the tutors were very aware of the information we needed to cover and the time we had available. Which was in marked contrast to my friends at 3 year universities. In addition the short time span for compeleting the degree meant that we all got much better grades when we got to the College of Law. We were well trained to absorb enormous amounts of information at top speed. On a personal level I also made some of my best friends at Bucks. Friends that I hold near and dear to this day and for the rest of my life. Go, you'll love it.
