About the University of Greenwich

The University of Greenwich is committed to student success, inclusivity and culture, research and knowledge exchange, and providing connected and sustainable campuses. We offer 130 taught postgraduate degrees and a range of research degrees to help our students achieve their goals, whether that is to expand on undergraduate interests, enter a new field, or boost employment prospects. As well as in-person taught degrees held on our campuses, we also offer flexible and online options for those who are interested in distance learning or part-time study.

We deliver career-focused courses, work placements, mentoring schemes and have well-established employer connections. Voted best university in the UK for careers service (StudentCrowd Awards 2023), we ensure our students access great employment opportunities and have the tools necessary to launch their own businesses. This allows us to provide our students with dynamic work and study experiences and help them to build a strong CV that shows employers they have an excellent education as well as quality work experience.

We make our students feel at home from day one, welcoming them to an inspiring graduate community on our friendly campuses. Teaching and living spaces are just minutes apart and there are plenty of relaxation and study spaces to enjoy. We provide a range of student support services and our Student Union is present on all three campuses, always on hand to provide advice and to give our student community a voice. At Greenwich, everyone receives a warm welcome and everyone is supported to succeed.

Student life at the University of Greenwich is enriched with culture, regardless of which campus you are based at. Our flagship campus at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich and our Medway Campus at the Chatham Dockyards in Kent are rich in maritime history and architectural wonder. You may recognise our home campus from major Hollywood films and TV shows, as it is one of the few places in the world that makes for a perfect period piece location. Our Avery Hill Campus in Eltham, a specialist site for students of education and health courses, is purpose-built with onsite accommodation, excellent sports facilities and state-of-the-art learning environments. The university offers a free low-emissions bus service between Greenwich and Avery Hill, or for a small fee to and from Medway, our science and engineering hub. All our campuses enjoy an exciting local scene, with restaurants, bars and entertainment venues nearby.

For the fifth year running, London has topped the QS Best Student Cities rankings (Quacquarelli Symonds Best Student Cities 2024), thanks to its thriving cultural, culinary and entertainment scene. Greenwich is home to the O2 arena, an entertainment venue that hosts live music and performance events. With transport links to major UK hubs, leisure destinations and international airports, travelling to and from the city is easy.

We provide an excellent social experience, with networks and societies for every interest and identity. These include sports and music, as well as supportive networks such as those for international students, students who identify as LGBTQ and student parents.

“My personal tutor in my first term was amazing. She helped me improve my essay writing skills and was willing to help me with anything outside university. She was concerned about my well-being and how I coped with university life overall. The university has a lot of opportunities, always ask questions and seek answers to help you be the best version of yourself.”

“The University of Greenwich helped me get to my career where I'm at now by introducing me to the web meetups, new sources of information and helping me pursue my career… Now I'm currently organizing State of the Browser's annual conference events, and that all came from my Masters.”

“…I always wanted to do my masters in London. It wasn't like a university for me at the beginning, it was like a second home. …I think Greenwich has the best opportunities… I think also [the university is]… really good at advising people and trying to make them more confident in their fields or about their future. I definitely recommend it. I'm still very happy. That's why I was a student, now I'm a full-time member of staff.”

We offer a wide range of financial support, including scholarships and bursaries.
