BCUC is a great place to study and have fun, to make friends and gain the qualifications which will enable you to succeed in the future.
BCUC is made up of three campuses in Buckinghamshire: High Wycombe, Chalfont and Wellesbourne. Located on the western outskirts of London, regular train services allow BCUC campuses to have inexpensive & easy access to the bright lights, culture and sites of central London. BCUC is also in good proximity to London Heathrow airport, London Gatwick Airport, Windsor and Oxford.
Each campus has a unique identity, yet share a friendly atmosphere, excellent facilities and a great social life. Where you study will depend on the course you choose, but one thing’s guaranteed – you’ll have everything you need close to hand.
At the heart of a modern market town, High Wycombe campus has well-equipped lecture theatres, a comprehensive library, places to eat and drink, as well as other great facilities. With fantastic shops, bars, clubs and a lively theatre, the town even boasts a professional football club, Wycombe Wanderers, who currently play in Coca Cola Football League Two.
Chalfont is our most picturesque campus, with acres of land and beautiful gardens for you to enjoy. While an 18th century mansion forms an impressive centrepiece, the facilities are thoroughly modern. They include purpose-built accommodation, a shop, a bar and nightclub, as well as a pitch for whatever kind of sport you’re into.
Just a few minutes from High Wycombe town, Wellesbourne is a very green and very calm campus – if you want it to be. But sports fans will be drawn to the extensive grounds and pitches as well as the superb Centre for Exercise, Health and Performance.
