    Overall:
    So far its great. I also think that the semesters are well thought. Since recession summerjobs are not readily available for international students in the UK and I really don't want to waste four months of my year in doing nothing.
    University:
    Good enough
    Course:
    So far very well structured time table. My personal tutor hours, goup work and class time are well balanced. Small class size and very approchable teacher is a definite plus. Module content is the same as in all the other unis for the same course I guess.
    Location:
    Small town, safe, not far from the airport. I would like to have a trainstation in town but at least the busses to Oxford and Milton Keanes go freaquently. Internet shopping delivery in one day.
    Accommodation:
    There is a good choice for all budgets. Mine is a mid range. Well situated on the campus.
    Settling in:
    Small size of the uni and classes help adapatation. Also, administration and teachers are helpful.

    Overall:
    This is a university that allows one to become the person they’ve always wanted to, in a stimulating and friendly environment
    University:
    Fantastic opportunities in a young university - you can push your boundaries and comfort zone
    Course:
    Small student:staff ration (1:7) allows for quality contact in tutorials, seminars and contact hours. Both summative and formative feedback provided. The tutors care about our progress and support us throughout.
    Location:
    I like that it’s close to London and Milton Keynes, however because there isn’t a train station in Buckingham the distance stretches
    Accommodation:
    Great value for money, brilliant location, however old house

    Overall:
    Excellent. Buckingham university spanning 3 campuses and private (no fee) parking employs lecturers and professors from all over in order to help provide their students with the best resources to help them succeed.
    University:
    This university ensures that people are given more one to one teaching. Questions and debates are encouraged and never hindered. Any problems are always dealt with effectively and efficiently.
    Course:
    The workload is manageable despite being a 2 year course. The lecturers have an open door policy and you can see them at any moment. The classes and tutorial sizes are small so that one to one teaching is more optimal allowing for discussions and debates to take place.
    Location:
    This university is intended for learning with the majority of students being mature students. This means that more focus is on learning than partying. However for those who ensuite goi g out the student union and varying societies provides many parties trips and events that cover many different categories.
    Accommodation:
    The ensuite rooms are small but are homely, fridges are provides in all rooms with new mattresses. The kitchen is large and cleaned daily.
    Settling in:
    I am a home person so if took me about 2 months too feel completely settled.
