Our High Wycombe campus, home of our renowned Social Work and Social Sciences courses, is situated approximately half way between London and Oxford, High Wycombe is the second largest town in Buckinghamshire. It’s not just an industrial centre, but also a market town, as shown by the busy stalls that crowd the high street three days a week – a tradition stretching right back to the 12th century.
Bucks New University is a great place to study and a great place to have fun and make friends. Above all, it is a superb environment to gain the qualification you need to succeed in the future.
