Why choose University of Greenwich?
The University of Greenwich is a large and diverse institution which traces its antecedents to 1890 and the foundation of the UK’s second Polytechnic at Woolwich in South East London. During the ensuing one hundred and twenty years, the University has merged with a number of other higher education institutions and developed strategic partnerships with a range of institutions in the UK and internationally.
The university offers a wide range of programmes, covering subjects such as architecture and construction, business, computing, health, education, science and engineering. It offers a vast portfolio of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, including combined degrees, which can be studied in a variety of ways. The university has a flexible approach to learning: many of its students balance the demands of education and family commitments.
