(Student Profile)

Fiona Chery

"I have spoken to a lot of people from other universities and the quality of teaching and support – both from tutors and administrators – here at the University of Greenwich is, in my view, one of the best in the UK for my subject area. From my attending the open evening through to the end of the course, there has always been someone to answer any question I might have had or point me in the right direction. I always knew what was expected of me, and that is very important when completing such a tough course as it is both academic and vocational."
