University of Greenwich

Greenwich is a multi-faculty, campus-based university, which is home to a diverse community of nearly 24,000 students studying in the UK, one in five of them postgraduate. It is based on three attractive, historic campuses in London and Kent. These include a campus at the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, a UNESCO World Heritage site; at Avery Hill, south-east London, set in 86 acres of parkland; and at an elegant Edwardian red-brick campus in Medway. The university has a reputation for superb teaching and high levels of student satisfaction. The 2014 Guardian University Guide rated Greenwich as top in London for teaching excellence in Law and Economics. The UK?s Universities and Science Minister, David Willetts MP, has praised Greenwich for ?excellent and innovative teaching?. The quality of the university?s research work has been recognised in many national awards, including three Queen?s Anniversary Prizes. World-leading research and training is also carried out by its Natural Resources Institute to support global food security and poverty reduction in developing countries. The university?s Strategic Plan, launched by Vice-Chancellor Professor David Maguire, is aimed at achieving continued excellence in teaching, research and enterprise, and has a goal of positioning Greenwich as a leading London university. More than 14,000 international students also study with an extensive network of Greenwich?s partner universities and colleges across the world.
