All About The Bucks Big Deal

What is The Bucks Big Deal?  From September 2014, Bucks New University is investing further in enhancing our students' experience.  Most UK universities expect students to meet a wide variety of costs (in addition to student fees) for books and course equipment, events, membership of clubs and societies, sport activities and social trips, and many students don't realise how expensive these extra costs can be. Here at Bucks we recognize the importance of reducing these additional costs, and have a great range of provision to help make your university experience successful, enjoyable and affordable.
The Gateway Building hosts our library - open 24/7
Here's what Bucks has in store for you:
  • Any additional costs for your course (such as textbooks, field trips, equipment or materials) will be made clear upfront to enable you to budget
  • To support your success on your course, the University will provide a course-specific package which can include: essential textbooks, equipment and materials, photocopying credits, and a contribution to the cost of field trips, up to a value of £1,000 over three years
  • Means-tested bursaries to cover essential field trip costs above the standard package 
  • 24 hour access to certain services in term time - The Library and IT suites at the High Wycombe campus, and a cafe, and extended access to studios, and events/ dance spaces 
  • A fund to assist with travel costs to attend job interviews, work placements and internships, because we know you value employability
  • Graduating for free - the University will pay for gown hire for graduating students (2014 entry and onwards.
All these benefits are in addition to our unique Big Deal package. Bucks is the only UK university to offer our students free access to a wide range of activities including free events, sport, society membership, skills workshops and training.
