Buckinghamshire New University Info

Buckinghamshire New University is a public university with campuses in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, and Uxbridge, West London. The Vice-Chancellor of the University is Rebecca Bunting. The institution dates from 1891 when it was founded as the School of Science and Art, and has since that date been re-invented variously as the Wycombe Technical Institute, the High Wycombe College of Art and Technology, and the Buckinghamshire College of Higher Education. It was a university college from 1999 until 2007 when it announced that its application for university status had been accepted.

History of Bucks

The name ‘Buckinghamshire New University’ was approved in October 2007. This marked a significant new chapter in the history of the University.

With the completion of the state-of-the-art Gateway building Bucks now boasts a modern integrated learning resources centre, music recording studios, video production suites and a fitness centre. The building won a RIBA award in 2010.

A second site in Uxbridge provides cutting edge theatres enabling nursing students to take a more hands on approach to their education.

We have also opened University Campus Aylesbury Vale in collaboration with the local Council and Buckinghamshire Education, Skills and Training.
