University of Buckingham, UK
In December, Teyah received her second acceptance. The University of Buckingham has offered Teyah a place on the Bachelor of Arts with Honours course in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics. Buckingham is unique. It is the only independent university in the UK with a Royal Charter, and probably the smallest with around 2,700 students. Honours degrees are achieved in two intensive years of study. Class sizes are small, with a student:academic staff ratio of 10.4:1 and the Oxbridge style tutorial groups are often personalised and always exhilarating.
The university campus is well known for being one of the most attractive locations in the region. The Great Ouse river, home to much wildlife, meanders through the heart of the campus. Much of the teaching takes place in the restored buildings such as the Franciscan Building, formerly a friary, and Chandos Road Building, a converted turn-of-the-century milk factory, while students can also enjoy the Hunter Street Library, once military barracks.
The Leopard's Tale is our main medium to keep our families informed on such things as the day to day happenings on campus, after school activities, summaries of any arts and sports events, helpful resources, and important dates and reminders.
