Students thinking of taking up higher education can see what is on offer at the University of Buckingham at its first ever open day on Saturday.

Lecturers and current students will be on hand to discuss all the undergraduate degrees offered at the university, including law, politics, psychology and economics.

Staff from the country’s first independent medical school at Buckingham – due to open in January – will also be there.

Representatives from the student union, accommodation, careers, and the sports union will also be available to give prospective students an insight into life at Buckingham.

Registration for the first session will run from 9.50am to 10.20am, and the second from 1.30pm to 2pm. Those in both sessions will receive a welcome talk from the vice-chancellor, Professor Alistair Alcock.

Lunch will be between noon and 2pm, and the ‘mini fair’ will run from noon to 3pm.

Also on the day, the vice-chancellor will embark on a debate as to whether prostitution is a fundamental right with the dean of law Susan Edwards.
