The Complete University Guide ranked Bucks Law second for student satisfaction in 2015. This means our Law graduates were more satisfied with their degree than graduates from almost any other university in the UK.

We have been offering law degrees for many years and pride ourselves on being approachable and supportive, putting you first at all times. We encourage our students to stay in contact after graduation as we are always interested to know where their careers have taken them.

Student testimonials
We interviewed a group of LLB Law students to comment on their experience at the end of their first year at Bucks. These were the comments they had to say about the course, the staff and the University.

"From studying at Bucks in particular, the gain you get from a smaller university is the involvement with your lecturers who can give you some real practical advice based on your individual preference and needs".

"The law team are really supportive and their door is always open. If you have any problems, you can go and ask them as they're always there to support you and give you any advice you need." - Nicola Misseldine

"The staff are all very supportive. They spend extra time out of lecture or seminars to go through the problems you have. The staff are friendly, helpful and they give you career advice which is very important in such a competitive market which law is."- Zeshan Ashraf

"I've really loved my first year. It's quite laid back. A lot of time is spent getting you used to it which was really appreciated. It helped everyone settle in and make friends and lecturers were so nice and helpful. My first year was really nice, easy, comfortable, fun and interesting."

"A smaller university is definitely a better university. You feel a lot more comfortable so you can ask questions even if they seem silly.  You get a lot more one to one time with the lecturers, who have an open door policy so you can go in to see them at any time. It's a lot more friendly and homely and you look forward to coming in and seeing everyone." - Charlotte Bergin

"The staff give us insight into what path to take and guide us onto that path. They give you an insight on what it takes to become a lawyer and what it takes to become a barrister and the hard work and effort required to put in to reach your goal."

"The open door policy is brilliant because you need to have a relationship with your staff. They know your strengths and weaknesses and it's like having a friend who you can talk to."- Vaq Khan (LLB Law student)
