University of Buckingham

The University of Buckingham is the only degree-awarding independent university in the United Kingdom. The university has the highest ranking in the UK for student satisfaction.

The main campuses are in Buckingham. The upper campus covers Law and Science. The river-side campus covers Humanities, Business, Social Sciences, Biomedical science, and Education. Teaching also takes place in London, in Grosvenor Place, at the home of one of the partner institutions: the European School of Economics.

Prominent academics at Buckingham include: philosopher Roger Scruton; philosopher and educationalist Anthony O'Hear; educationalist Alan Smithers; the former Chief Inspector of Schools Chris Woodhead; the cancer specialist Karol Sikora; the controversial historian and political scientist Geoffrey Alderman; and the expert in UK Intelligence, Anthony Glees.

The University of Buckingham Master's of Art Degree examines the development of English and French interiors and decorative arts in the "long" eighteenth century (c.1660-1830) and their rediscovery and reinterpretation in the nineteenth and twentieth. The course emphasises the first-hand study of furniture, silver and ceramics, in historic interiors, with trips to collections in and around London, and a study week to explore country houses. There is a study week in Paris, where students can explore some of the private apartments at Versailles not normally accessible to the public, as well as a number of very important eighteenth-century private houses in Paris, open by special permission.
