The University of Buckingham
Smith Recycling MK Lightning is proud to announce a new partnership with the University of Buckingham, the second of the team’s PLATINUM sponsors this season.
As part of the partnership agreement with Lightning, four of the 2017-18 team will study for a Masters in Business Administration with the University.
Jane Tapsell, Dean of the University of Buckingham, said: “We are delighted to be entering this partnership with MK Lightning and look forward to welcoming the Lightning players to the University. We’re very excited by the opportunities this partnership will provide, both to our staff and student body and everyone involved with MK Lightning. As the University enters its 41st year we are thrilled to be continuing our close working relationships with Milton Keynes.”
Buckingham, which is the only UK university independent of direct government support, has used its independence to pioneer a distinctive approach to higher education and became the first in Britain to open a private medical school two years ago in a partnership with Milton Keynes University Hospital.
The University’s continuous commitment to quality has seen it placed at or close to the top of the National Student Survey rankings for student satisfaction since 2006. In 2016, it was named University of the Year for teaching quality by The Times and Sunday Times.
A more attractive staff-to-student ratio than the UK university average means a high and continuous level of support is maintained, allowing a degree of interaction between staff and students that is rarely seen in other universities. The University offers a diverse range of courses, from accounting to diplomacy and from marketing to international studies.
