Over the years, we have established ourselves as a place of research and academic achievement – a reputation reinforced by our high teaching standards and the ways in which our programmes respond directly to the changing needs of industry.

Teaching excellence

At the University of Greenwich we set high standards for teaching quality. Our staff include a winner of the Times Higher Education Most Innovative Teacher Award and several National Teaching Fellows, a status which recognizes exceptional teaching.

Excellent transport links

All three of our campuses benefit from excellent transport links. Greenwich and Avery Hill Campuses are well connected by bus and train to central London, and Medway Campus is just a 45-minute train journey away. Once you are in the capital, the whole country is open to you through high-speed train links to virtually all the major cities.

Modern resources

The university continually invests in developing its three campuses. New buildings and improved resources include the addition of the state-of-the-art Stockwell Street library and academic building, and the development of the Dreadnought building into the central student hub and go-to place for students.  We are committed to providing the best learning environment for our students so they have all the necessary resources to succeed in their studies.
