“We recognise Kings Education as a partner that shares our ethos of quality teaching, student experience and putting students first at the University of Buckingham.
They are well placed in preparing students to join us in the future onto some of our most competitive courses, such as Biomedical Science, Medicine and Podiatric Medicine.”

The University of Buckingham Medical school was granted General Medical Council (GMC) approval in 2019.
The GMC commented on the University’s “excellent professional, academic and pastoral support that extends throughout the University and clinical learning environments’ and ‘the robust systems that ensure the quality of all aspects of the MB ChB programme, including teaching and assessment”.
“We are committed to producing great doctors and allied health professionals at the University of Buckingham. Competition for places on these programmes is very keen throughout the sector and our partnership with Kings Education will provide another route to these exciting professions.”
