Our University

Buckinghamshire New University (formerly Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College) is a university in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, England. The Institution was a university college between 1999 and 2007, when it announced that its application for university status had been accepted, after having failed in its previous two attempts.

The Institution changed its name from "Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College" to its current name of "Buckinghamshire New University" ("Bucks") when its application for university status was approved in 2007 by the Privi Council. Proposed names such as "University of Wycombe", "University of High Wycombe", "High Wycombe University", "University of Buckinghamshire" and "Buckingham Chilterns University" were rejected. The chosen name was swiftly attacked by the University of Buckingham for daring to use the county name.Whether the "New University" moniker will be sustainable or relevant several years into the future is also a subject of debate.

Bucks had ambitious plans to consolidate its divided campuses into a purpose-built site near to Hughenden Park in High Wycombe on land previously owned by CompAir. While these plans fell through, the university changed plans to renovate and enlarge the main campus as well as consolidate both the Wellesbourne and Chalfont campuses onto the High Wycombe site. Additionally two new halls of residence will be built at the Hughenden Park site.

The University has started a major development of the High Wycombe campus with a large structure being built onto the front of the existing building, the building itself is based on a study of its contexts and the irregular urban gain of the town centre.

Formed in 1975, The National Eczema Society has two principal aims: first, to provide people with independent and practical advice about treating and managing eczema; secondly, to raise awareness of the needs of those with eczema with healthcare professionals, teachers and the government.

The National Eczema Society’s research policy is to fund PhD studentships to support existing research programmes. The Society has an independent scientific committee which manages the PhD studentship selection process and ensures that proposals for research are effectively peer reviewed and monitored. The results of the PhD research projects are disseminated as widely as possible to ensure that the whole scientific community is informed of any findings. More than 250 doctors, nurses and pharmacists attend the National Eczema Society’s professional training days, which they hold around the country each year. The workshops include demonstrations on wet wraps, bandaging and emollient application, plus presentations from dermatology specialists and the chance to talk with eczema patients, to hear first hand the difficulties of living with eczema.

Their support of healthcare professionals in the community with training days and information has helped to ensure that at least 130,000 patients had access to the latest advice in treatment and care. The 2008/9 Study Programme began on September 18, 2008 in Edinburgh followed by November 20, in Manchester. Other study days are planned for Belfast, Middlesbrough, Bradford and Maidstone in 2009.
