31st March 2020 - The University of Buckingham has chosen the MSL System to support the Students’ Union services it delivers for its 3000+ students. The University will use the core MSL System™ which includes events and ticket sales, clubs and societies, feedback resources, and the StudentLink™ app to increase engagement with students both on and off campus and in work placements.
The University of Buckingham is the home of the two-year degree, offering the widest range of courses in the two-year format. Established in the 1970s with just 65 students, Buckingham now has a student population of around 3300 students originating from more than 100 countries, studying foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in a whole range of subjects, from law to languages and accounting to medicine.
University staff work in collaboration with a team of elected student officers, who are responsible for representing the student body, to deliver the current Students’ Union services. As the University began to expand its presence with a new campus in Crewe, which opened in September 2019, the need for a digital solution to enable more opportunities for engagement and participation became apparent. Following a comprehensive review of the market, the University selected the MSL System.
Callum Roberts, Sports & SU Manager at the University of Buckingham commented: “We're really pleased to be working with MSL; this system will enable us to create a one stop shop for current students to find out about every activity and opportunity within the Union and will help us bring everyone closer together as a community at Buckingham.”
Gary Bryant, Chief Executive of Membership Solutions Ltd added: “The MSL team is delighted to welcome the University of Buckingham and its Students’ Union to the MSL community. We are always excited to work with an organisation as it puts into place plans to expand its presence and activities to support students and their interests. We look forward to working closely with the University team and Students’ Union officers to ensure the MSL System helps deliver those plans.”
