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.

University of Greenwich Reputation

Located in Central London, the University of Greenwich is a vibrant and multicultural place to study and is classed as the top achiever in teaching excellence out of all other universities in London. The university is based over three campus sites each with its own library and computing facilities open until midnight every day of the week.

Across the various campus sites there are many opportunities to play sport or make use of the facilities. These include gyms, sports halls, courts, football pitches and an all-weather pavilion with an athletics track. Close by in the local communities there is also an ice rink, swimming pools, rowing and cycling club.

As expected it is the Students' Union that is at the heart of entertainment on the university campus. In it's two main bars the Students' Union hosts all sorts of themed evenings including comedy, karaoke, music events and fundraisers. Also in the Students' Union are cafés, outlets an advice service plus the opportunity to get involved in any of the sports clubs and societies on offer.

Among the alumni for the University of Greenwich are author Malorie Blackman, comedian Norman Pace, politician Gareth Thomas, singer Natasha Bedingfield and Nobel Prize Winner Charles K. Kao, known as 'The Godfather of Broadband'.

Many students are given the opportunity to study abroad and widen their experience. For the same reason the University of Greenwich is also a popular choice for international students to carry out their studies. More than 4,000 international students are attracted to this university and make use of its vast resources, research centres and learning environments. With the students' Unions, activities and events it is easy to meet new people at the same time as gaining an internationally recognised qualification and a good level of written and spoken English.

The University of Greenwich is continually being recognised for it's achievements. Recently included in this is the creation of Map My Programme which is a tool that can be used by staff to effectively monitor and continuously improve information and assessments delivered to students.

It is not worth the money or time. It is too expensive, no afterwards assistance in employability perspectives, vague academic needs and very rude, "blamy" and greedy uni services.

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!!!!!

Underwhelming compared to the initial impression, it really depends on your course choice. Make sure you are prepared to gain most of your learning from the available facilities etc

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.
