    Hi all, I am applying to Buckingham to study law and I know very little about the university. Is there anyone who currently studies there to give some honest advice? I have looked at a number of websites with mixed reviews, the reviews on uni stats are impressive but on the university league tables it shows only 50% of people get a 1st or upper second class honours compared to 84% in Exeter and 84% in Birmingham where I am also applying. These figures are worrying. Also why are the asking grades so low 'BBB' for law?? The idea of completing a law degree in two years sounds great especially because it will take me another year to get my solicitor qualifications and then two years as a trainee. I am aware the 'night-life' is awful but I read a post by a past student who said there where "no" English people and half his class could not speak English. I love the idea of studying in such a multicultural environment but seriously I would like to have some native English friends aswell! I am so worried I have to make my firm choice soon and I really torn, so honest opinions please about the university. Thanks!

    Hello Grace. I am currently doing my postgraduate in UoB and I just finished my undergraduate in December. In regards to grades, I don't know much about the law school because I studied journalism but I would tell you this, the teachers that I had for my journalism and english literature and even the my current teachers in the business school are really great. I think they are wonderful teachers and I am grateful for them. And there are a whole lot of people who speak English here in Buckingham. In fact, I believe that there are more people who speak English here than those that don't. Maybe I am biased because I am here but if you really are interested in coming here, maybe come for an open day just to clear your doubts.

    Hi Grace!

    I'm so sorry for our huge delay! If you still need any help or support, please do let me know.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
