I’ve a good advice to all potential students. Please avoid Greenwich University. It’s a beautiful location and beautiful buildings. Nothing else. Inside it looks terrible. The level of teaching extremely low. Many lecturers do not speak a proper English. The biggest regret to join the university. No support from the stuff at all. Avoid!!!
The campus is beautiful, however if you want a good academic experience I personally would not recommend this university. Out of 8 of my lecturers, only two of them actually actively give their students constant support, the others just don't teach. My "personal tutor" who is meant to help us during our three years in university has never, NEVER replied to ANY OF MY EMAILS IN THE THREE YEARS. I thought I was the only one who she didn't reply to, turns out she doesn't reply to any of my coursemate's emails either. Absolute shambolic of an education system and they are so disorganised.
Overall I think the university isn't bad, the facilities are old and the university is doing the best they can with what they have. I love the library and all the available resources to use for coursework as well as personal development. I haven't interacted with Students Union much. There are quite a few interesting societies and clubs available but it's difficult to be a part of them if you don't live on campus. What I am completely disappointed with is the complete lack of support for students and their mental health. The services provided by university are very minimal and not helpful. Many lectures are very condescending and sometimes seem to not understand that students have other responsibilities, such as work. The faculty members on higher positions only seem to care about money and treat university as a business.
Are you seriously going to rate an university based on its campus and WiFi? It's a really bad university, yet it's getting ratings high for its campus and resources. Gotta admit they are not bad, but really? Aren't we going to rate an university based on the level of teaching? These 2 stars are not for the campus facilities, but for the teaching quality so keep that in mind.
Taking my course here was the worst decision of my life. Falsely advertised course, poor teaching, no solid teaching body through the entire 3 years, learnt more in 2 weeks work experience than 3 years here. Students Personally attacked on grading if negative commetns of the course were made or attendance is poor. Numerous students graded poorly after not being taught sufficiently. Overall just a business without student interest at heart.
Overall, Good.Nice new library,24 hrs drinkable water supply, your best friend during end of year. Environment is good, in fact awesome, specially during Autumn. Student Union..........no comment, building placed at weird spot where you normally wouldn't get close except live next to it. Career support is good, cv check, periodic career or internship event helps a lot. If you're a self motivate student and always appear in events, "merit" you obtained may form the "Employability passport",which give you some advantage. --------- There are good things doesn't mean perfect. first, it's small,specially if you're not counting the library. There isn't a timelord wearing like British to redecorate it. Further more not all teacher are good, several prefer put everything in powerpoint and just simply read out,causing lecture become pointless. last, if you're [Asian], they might force you to study with other Asian(CN) instead of local student.(Even you're from Japan or Korea)
I lived on Avery Hill Campus for my first year and it felt as if there was nothing to do socially, and because my course was located on Avery Hill campus I felt secluded from the actual university itself and was unable to socialise with others who were attending courses on the main campus. There was a bus into Greenwich (took about 30 mins) but once you got there there wasn't really a lot to do and the last bus was at 9pm therefore if you wanted to go to the students union there you wouldn't be able to spend long there.
The new library and the area is nice, that's about it. Student Union?.... what Student Union? In my 3 years at Greenwich, I only went there 2 times as there was nothing to do there. I really really regret coming here now, I really do :(
DO NOT GO TO THIS UNI TO STUDY LAW! The lecturers have their favourites, every good opportunity is shoved down their throats. I under performed in my first year and that was it, the lecturers didn't give me much attention. Also, in one of my third year electives, the lecturer... just left 1 week before she was going to help us with the 70% weighted project. We didn't hear back from her. We initially had 2.5 months to finish it but we were told that the lecturer would come back the next month so we waited which reduced the time to 1.5 months. Then with no support whatsoever, we were told to 'do our best' and to just 'figure it out.' I just managed to pass that module which brought down my degree significantly as I know that I could've done much better if she hadn't left as I got a very good grade for another assessment in that module. Something similar happened for another module. There's so much I could complain about but the word limit on here won't let me. AWFUL UNI!!!!!
I am currently doing my PGCE (Secondary education) with Greenwich. This University was one my choices amongst others. And I am glad I chose this place. The whole secondary education staff have been very helpful. The help and support offered by this Uni. is second to none especially with such an intensive course. I have found the course very well structured and tutors very helpful and supportive. I would strongly recommend this Uni. to people who are considering to pursue PGCE in the future.
A lively and easily accessible inner city university with rich history and coupled with its high level of international students, allows for a deeply accepting society. University facilities more than meet the standards of the course and the contact hours are well spent. Lecturers are always willing to help, even out of hours.
The Union bar is amazing, really colourful and cheap in terms of drink and food. There are clubs, however not so many that cater to my needs personally and all the good ones seem to be over on a different campus which is not very convenient. In terms of career opportunities the uni will help you but it's up to the individual to make their own opportunities arise both through academia and by networking.
