There is free parking on-site and we are within easy reach of London and Oxford.- Our award-winning small class tutorials ensure every student is known by name and supported throughout their studies, including by dedicated personal tutors.- As pioneers of the two-year degree, we offer a condensed version of the traditional three-year degree, meaning you can gain a full honours degree and complete your studies a whole year earlier.

Criminology itself is an interdisciplinary study comprised of the legal, social, psychological and cultural aspects of crime.We can usually accommodate the additional requirements needed to practise in some countries and if you are an overseas student we are happy to discuss exactly what subjects you must take in order to qualify for your jurisdiction.During your study for the Buckingham LLB you will become proficient in written and oral presentation, perfect your research techniques and learn to solve problems in a logical and structured way.Students at Buckingham who gain a second class honours degree or higher are guaranteed a place on our LLM programme in International and Commercial Law.
