University of Greenwich

The University of Greenwich has one of the most beautiful settings in London. Its Greenwich Campus sits on a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the banks of the River Thames, while Avery Hill Campus in south-east London and Medway Campus in Kent offer a real campus university atmosphere. The university has been providing quality education for more than 125 years and has a silver rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework, as well as strong links to business. Its postgraduate courses cover most academic subjects, including:

  • Architecture, landscape and the built environment
  • Business
  • Computing and mathematical sciences
  • Education (including PGCE)
  • Engineering
  • Health
  • Humanities and social sciences
  • Law and criminology
  • Media and creative arts
  • Science.

Many of the postgraduate courses at the university are accredited by leading professional bodies such as the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, BSC – The Chartered Institute of IT, Royal Institute of British Architects and the General Pharmaceutical Council. Students are taught by research-active academics who contribute to internationally recognised research and can look forward to expert guest speakers at lectures and seminars.

Internationally recognised research

For more than a century, the university has provided innovative solutions for governments, charities, industry and society as a whole in the UK and overseas. The university’s research has won a series of national awards, including four Queen’s Anniversary Prizes for Higher and Further Education. Its contribution has been particularly important in fields such as food security, computer modelling and fire safety, healthcare, pharmaceuticals and sustainable development.

First-class facilities

The university may be steeped in history but it is also a very modern institution, fully equipped with all the latest technology. It has invested more than £80 million in teaching and student facilities in the past five years alone, including the £25-million makeover of the Dreadnought Building, which re-opened in autumn 2018. Dreadnought has open-access IT labs and state-of-the-art teaching and study spaces, as well as plenty of spaces for socialising. A specialist centre for engineering and science, Medway Campus has industry-standard lab space and offers students access to cutting-edge technology. Avery Hill Campus is renowned for its excellent teaching and sporting facilities, which include four clinical skills labs and two floodlit, all-weather sports pitches.
