University of Greenwich

Introduction

Over a century of experience

The University of Greenwich offers the best of both worlds – city and country. As a student, you are on the doorstep of London, but with the best of Kent not far away. Our two London campuses are Avery Hill and Greenwich, both situated in the Royal Borough of Greenwich. Medway Campus is in Chatham Maritime, in north Kent. The university traces its roots to 1890, when Britain’s second polytechnic was opened near the Thames at Woolwich. An innovator from the start, the polytechnic pioneered the country’s first part-time day-release and sandwich courses. Over the years, many specialist organisations have joined the institution, giving it diverse strengths such as teacher training, architecture, engineering and history. We were awarded university status in 1992.

Our teaching excellence

The expertise of our staff has been recognised by appointments to prestigious positions and by many awards, including our third Queen’s Anniversary Prize, which was won for a project to reduce poverty in Africa. We set high standards for teaching quality – we even have a former winner of the Times Higher Education award for the Most Innovative Teacher of the Year.

Strength in diversity

We are proud of our diverse student body. Over 5,100 of our students come from outside the UK, representing 140 countries. Support is provided to over 1,000 students who have disabilities or dyslexia, and we attract students of all ages. In fact, over 18,000 of our undergraduates are classed as mature students (over 21). We have many years’ experience welcoming international students, and we understand your particular needs. Our International Office and in-country representatives can offer you expert advice throughout your application, while, as a student of the university, you will always find staff ready to help.

Research

Our cutting-edge research, specialist facilities and expert training are in demand throughout the world, attracting clients from over 50 countries including international agencies, government departments and global corporations. Our work spans diverse areas, from computer modelling and software development to electronics manufacturing, drug delivery and food management.

Supporting arts and culture

Greenwich Campus has previously hosted special events for Black History Month and is the home of the Stephen Lawrence Gallery, which showcases the work of artists from all backgrounds. Students can also join the university’s swing band or university choir.

The Old Royal Naval College, of which Greenwich Campus is a part, is a popular location for TV and film productions. Harrison Ford, Johnny Depp, Nicole Kidman, Kim Cattrall and Jude Law have all filmed on site.

"Studying at the University of Greenwich has given me both international experience and a great degree! I know that I have a great career ahead of me thanks to the preparation that I have had at Greenwich.”
