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!
