I am applying to university this year and need help deciding between putting an offer from Winchester uni as my firm, or an unconditional offer from Buckingham. I would really appreciate advice from people who have been to either or just your general opinion. Please reply ASAP.

Bear in mind Buckingham is a private university for-profit. I think the tuition fees are something like 12k but the degree is two years. It's very different from other universities.
Buckingham is for-profit? Afaik its a private non-profit institution.
Neither have stellar academic reputations, and Buckingham does 2 year degrees. It sounds great, until you realise that internationally a degree usually has to be four years long to be recognised as a degree (yes, standard 3 year UK degrees are considered questionable internationally - a fact not often published)
You'll also have to work out how to fund going to Buckingham - SFE will only give you £6k a year towards private tuition fees, but Bucks charges £11,250 a year.
