Location - High Wycombe and Uxbridge.

Bucks is located on the western outskirts of London, with two campuses – one in High Wycombe and the other in Uxbridge.

Situated between London and Oxford, High Wycombe is the second largest town in Buckinghamshire. It’s an industrial town and a market town, with busy stalls that crowd the high street three days a week – a tradition stretching back to the 12th century. The campus is just 25 minutes away from London by train and a 30-minute drive from Heathrow airport.

Uxbridge enables much closer links with the clinical areas where the nursing placements are undertaken. Studying here will be a quieter, more focused environment. Still, the nursing students don't have to miss out on the fun, as they are entitled to all the benefits of studying at High Wycombe and Bucks provides a free shuttle service between campuses. Uxbridge itself is a vibrant and friendly town, just 15 miles from central London, with many sports and leisure facilities, a wide range of retail outlets and a variety of bars and restaurants. Heathrow airport is a 20-minute drive, and from this campus, you can walk to the tube station and travel to London using the Metropolitan Line.
