About The University of Buckingham
The University of Buckingham is the only degree-awarding independent university in the United Kingdom. The university has the highest ranking in the UK for student satisfaction. Its highest-rated departments are English, Business, and Law (see below).

The main campuses are in Buckingham. The upper campus covers Law and Science. The river-side campus covers Humanities, Business, Social Sciences, Biomedical science, and Education. Teaching also takes place in London, in Grosvenor Place, at the home of one of the partner institutions: the European School of Economics.

Prominent academics at Buckingham include: philosopher Roger Scruton; philosopher and educationalist Anthony O'Hear; educationalist Alan Smithers; the former Chief Inspector of Schools Chris Woodhead; the cancer specialist Karol Sikora; the controversial historian and political scientist Geoffrey Alderman; and the expert in UK Intelligence, Anthony Glees.

Some of the founding academics migrated from the University of Oxford, disillusioned or wary of aspects of the late 1960s' ethos. On 27 May 1967, The Times published a letter from Dr J. W. Paulley, which said: "Is it now time to examine the possibility of creating at least one university in this country on the pattern of  great private foundations in the USA". Three London conferences followed which explored this idea.

Subsequently the university was incorporated as the University College of Buckingham in 1973, and received its Royal Charter from the Queen in 1983.

Its development was influenced by the libertarian Institute of Economic Affairs, in particular, Harry Ferns and Ralph Harris, heads of the Institute. In keeping with its adherence to a libertarian philosophy, the university's foundation-stone was laid by Margaret Thatcher, who was also to be the university's Chancellor (nominal and ceremonial head) between 1993 and 1998. The University's first two Vice-Chancellors were Lord Beloff, the former Gladstone Professor of Politics at the University of Oxford, and Sir Alan Peacock, the economist, founder of the Economics department at York University, and Fellow of the British Academy.
