About us

Our vision at Bucks New University is to be a leading professional and creative influence, shaping higher education for the benefit of people and employers. Within a caring and supportive environment, we deliver high-quality scholarship, as well as focused research and professional practice.

Our mission is to put our students first and work responsively with the very best partners to influence, inspire and nurture talent for professional and creative careers. To achieve this, we have put the student experience at the heart of all our plans. We work with a range of partners regionally, nationally and internationally to ensure that our students leave us ready for the world of work, and that we are able to meet the current and future needs of employers.

The University has enjoyed a long and successful history since it was founded in 1893 as the School of Science and Art. We now offer education to over 9,000 students studying on a range of courses linked to the creative and cultural industries, the management and information management sectors, and the public sector.

We offer first-class facilities at our High Wycombe and Uxbridge Campuses, many of which are available for hire at competitive rates. The University’s Missenden Abbey Conference Centre offers a range of conference, meeting, training and wedding options in the setting of a 12th century abbey. We are always happy to answer any enquiries.
