Nowadays Bucks has three main campuses, High Wycombe, Uxbridge and Aylesbury. High Wycombe is where most of our courses are based. Uxbridge campus is home to our wide range of nursing and healthcare courses, while the University Campus Aylesbury Vale offers a host of courses that are geared towards careers and professional programmes.
Over the past ten years or so, we have invested over £100 million in our facilities to make sure they meet our staff and students’ needs. The Gateway, our flagship building, is a state-of-the-art complex that hosts media production studios, a library, sports facilities and a gym all under one roof. The Gateway was such an innovative space and so admired that it won a coveted RIBA award in 2010.
In 2016 we opened our multi-million pound Human Performance, Exercise and Wellbeing Centre, which is a beacon for premium sports and exercise science. The centre has a three-lane running track with 3D motion-capture technology, along with a sports injury and physiotherapy clinic. It has already become a hub for sports conditioning and treatment in the area.
We have also recently updated the south wing of our campus in Queen Alexandra Road, High Wycombe, to create dedicated and bespoke learning areas, along with informal spaces for students.
At the same time our investment in Hughenden Park Student Village means there are now over 400 en-suite rooms available for students, all just a short walk from our High Wycombe campus.
Some stand out courses
We offer industry-leading travel and aviation courses, giving students the chance to study for a professional pilot’s licence while also carrying out university studies.
You’ll find some of the UK’s only music management courses here. We also offer film and television production, and have forged rewarding partnerships with some high profile industry names in the media.
We are one of the very few universities that offer a degree in policing, giving graduates the chance to move onto a career in the police force.
Bucks is also one of the leading providers of nursing qualifications in the South-East, offering adult, child and mental health pre-qualifying nursing.
