Course summary

The University of Buckingham is:

  • Home of the two-year degree, the University of Buckingham, based in the South East of England, is ranked 6th for Student Satisfaction in the UK (National Student Survey, 2020).
  • We are proudly independent and not-for-profit, and offer courses in Allied Health, Business, Computing, Education, Humanities, Law, Medicine, Psychology and Security and Intelligence. We are one of the few universities in the UK that offer September and January start dates for almost all of our courses.
  • Based in Buckingham on a riverside campus, we are only 20 minutes’ from Milton Keynes central station and a short drive from Bicester, Aylesbury, Banbury and Northampton. There is free parking on-site and we are within easy reach of London and Oxford.
  • Our award-winning small class tutorials ensure every student is known by name and supported throughout their studies, including by dedicated personal tutors.
  • As pioneers of the two-year degree, we offer a condensed version of the traditional three-year degree, meaning you can gain a full honours degree and complete your studies a whole year earlier. Alternatively, you can complete both your undergraduate and master’s degree with us in just three years: saving you time and money.
To recognise the achievement of graduation from the Advanced Command and Staff Course (ACSC) or its international equivalent, The University of Buckingham offers a special six-months discounted MA by Research in the field of Modern War Studies and Contemporary Military History. This offer is open to all officers (regular and reserve) who have graduated from the ACSC or an equivalent course in their international home institutions. The course commences in October with a ‘Research Skills Study Day’ and, after 6 months of supervised independent research, culminates with the student’s submission of a dissertation of approximately 12,500 – 25,000 words.During their time of study, candidates are encouraged to attend both a series of guest seminars at the Army and Navy Club, Pall Mall, and a course research day at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. The course is based in London, but there are no residential requirements for the course. Past students have come from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. Face-to-face tutorials remain the preferred way of teaching, but other (online) methods can also be used. In order to make full use of the course and its guest seminars, it is advised to start with the course at the beginning of the academic year (October). We recognise that this might not be possible for everybody and, therefore, offer a second start-date in January.


Entry requirements

Every officer graduated from the ICSC (regular and reserve), or an equivalent course in their international home institutions, can apply for the course.
