The University of Buckingham Foundation

The University of Buckingham Foundation, a charity (reg charity no 1094042), was created in 2002 to support and promote all aspects of education of the students who attend the University; to benefit the wider academic community and purposes of the University as a whole, and to promote all aspects of academic research.

The University of Buckingham is the only independent university in the UK and was founded in 1973. Its founding Principal was Max Beloff who believed firmly in institutional independence. Buckingham is different from all other universities in the UK in that it is completely free to make decisions about the education and care of its students. It has one of the highest staff : student ratios in the UK and, in particular, offers its students small group teaching and individual mentoring. It is a multi-cultural institution and has students from over 80 different countries. In a world where civilisations clash, Buckingham fosters tolerance and mutual understanding.

It took moral courage for the founders of Buckingham, over 30 years ago, to create this centre of scholarship and research free of state direction. Since then, the University has relied on fee income and the generosity of its donors to support its work and sustain its growth. The Foundation is now seeking major financial support for scholarships, professorships, fabric renovation and construction of new buildings. This will enable the University to enter its next period of growth and become stronger and more relevant and influential than ever before both in the UK and the rest of world.

Do join us in supporting the one institution of higher education in the UK which has throughout its history demonstrated a courage and care no other university can match.
