University of greenwich is a fantastic place for study. I am very proud of my achievements during my time at university. The dedication and hard work that have been put into my learning, that allowed me to succeed in many ways as well as developed other essential skills that required in future, like, being able to communicate confidently, understanding others, presentation skills and many others. I would suggest everyone to join whether they are mature or overseas students. All the staff members are very friendly, helpful and willing to provide support to the students.

Q
Hi! I applied for a Masters in Child and Adolescent Psychology (Full time). What's an example of a weekly timetable?

Q
Planning to do masters in electrical and electronics. Thoughts??

Hi,

It's great to hear you are planning to study with us. Our Electrical and Electronic Engineering Masters is unique in many ways, encourages students to push themselves intellectually and creatively, and involves a placement. Graduates from this course can pursue careers as electrical and electronic engineers in sectors ranging from communications to control and instrumentation in the process industries. You will study at our idyllic Medway campus, which has regular transport links into both London and further into Kent. 

Maybe a current student in the FLAS faculty can also add a reply to tell you their personal experience studying at Greenwich. You can also come and chat to current students by using our live chat on our website (active 9-5 on weekdays).

Q
Hi, I'm looking forward to applying to MS Strategic Marketing. Is it worth getting a Masters from the Uni of Greenwich? As compared to other universities in the UK?
By member859835 On 10th June 21
Reply from University of Greenwich
On 14th June 21

Hi,

Where you choose to go for your Masters is a personal decision. You should look in depth at the course content, the unversity itself, and graduate prospects to make a decision on what is best for you. 

Our degrees in this subject are ranked 2nd in London (The Complete University Guide League Tables 2021).

The University of Greenwich is a respected, modern institution with excellent staff and great proximity to central London and the many possibilities that this location offers. To talk over specific aspects of the university in more detail, come and talk to us on our website's live chat. From 9-5 every working day you can speak to current students or members of our recruitment team, and we can help you make up your mind on coming to Greenwich for your Masters.

Q
I will like to apply for PHD in business management. I am a mum of young children. How many days will I be expected to be in class and how many years will my course be. Thank you
By member1358566 On 23rd May 21
Reply from University of Greenwich
On 8th June 21

Hi,

Our Business research degree is 1.5-4 years full time and 2.5-7 years part time. Timetables differ depending on year and on the duration of the course you choose, but you may expect to be in class maybe 2 days per week. As a PHD involves a lot of independent study and research, you would also be expected to spend a lot of time outside of class also studying.

Hope this helps! For further information and immediate answers, you can use the live chat function on gre.ac.uk to chat with one of our Student Ambassadors from 9-5 on any working day.

I personally like everything the small activities to, the student union the point of keeping the personal tutor. I can count on my fingers easily there are many it all depends upon on yourself how much active you're with the societies and the extracurricular activities all will help you and guide you and at the end, it's you who have to apply and be constant.

The University of Greenwich is a lovely place to study it is split into three campuses Medway, Greenwich, and Avery Hill Campus. Greenwich campus is the best in terms of facilities, clubs and society’s. Avery hill is second best and more of a accommodation place for students and a few classrooms and a really big sports hall so it is like a little village area. Their is free travel to both areas provided by the SU. The SU office is mainly at Greenwich campus but their is one located at each campus and a careers service centre. Free WiFi across all 3 campuses. Medway is a little isolated but overall very big and nice. However you are charged to travel back and forth from Medway campus so that can be expensive also it is very far. However life over their is quite fun especially if you live on campus.

Hi,

Thanks so much for your review, and for touching on each of our unique campuses!

You can learn more about each of our campuses here: Greeniwch, Avery Hill, Medway. Each are beautiful and interesting in their own right.

Travelling between Avery Hill and Greenwich is easy; we have a free campus bus that regularly runs between the two. Getting to Medway may take a bit longer, but the commute is worth it to see the impressive historic campus. All prospective students should expect to be wowed by our facilities and locations, no amtter which of our three campuses they end up on!

Greenwich University has been absolutely fantastic for me. The course is excellent, and the lecturers are fantastic at assisting students. They take a personal interest in students' lives and well-being, as well as how to balance it with external challenges. The welfare team is incredible, and as a first-year student, the university does an excellent job of integrating students.

There are great facilities on campus, science labs, paramedic science labs, criminology labs, Engineering labs and new Food labs in Jelico. There are 3 food places at part of the University of Greenwich, my personal favourite is the cafe in Pembroke where you can get fresh pizza's made to order. However, the deep ends good for evenings as the karaoke society practices once a week, there's pool table, sports and films shown and they have events like silent disco too. There are also two cafes from the university of Kent and Canturbury which you can go in to, I like the smoothies from the Kent cafe. There is a veriety of clubs and society's, Student union are active and the careers service is there to help through pdp modules or individual appointments, the only thing that needs Improving is the Wifi.

Hi there,

We are so glad to hear that you are enjoying the on-campus facilities including the academic and social sides of the university. The societies are a really great way to meet new people and find hobbies that you might not have thought of before! We are very proud to say that the student's union has so many to choose from (more info on our socieities here!). You mentioned that the wifi could be improved, I would suggest having a look at the eduroam configuration assistant tool (CAT) as this has definitely made my connection more reliable. You can have a look at that here. - Duncan

Applying to this university was probably one of the best decisions I have made in my life! The idea of attending university itself was quite daunting to think about at the beginning. However, once I started my course here I felt so at ease. There was always help available such as the library staff and the academic support services, so I did not feel like I was alone when completing my assignments. I have had an enjoyable experience so far and have made so many memories as well as lifelong friends. If you are thinking about applying here, I would definitely say not to give it a second thought and go for it :)

I have had a brilliant few years at Greenwich, I am a bit sad to be graduating this year as I will miss it! All of the staff are really supportive and there are so many employability opportunities whilst studying, as well as when you are graduating. There are many different clubs and societies that you can get involved in, and there are also a lot of very well-paid student jobs available! I am confident that I made the right decision by studying here, I have had a really positive experience and would recommend this university.

The University of Greenwich is an amazing university and is really under appreciated! We have amazing facilities and lecturers. There is so much support available for students and I always kno who to contact if I am ever in need of help. My mental health has been so low at points and I've always had problems but was able to get help through the university which I am so grateful for. There are also lots of academic support workshops and appointments that help me with assignments. All lecturers are really helpful and very approachable! I particularly recommend all healthcare courses!

The University of Greenwich stands out for me as it has allowed me to better integrate myself into the university experience as a student coming from abroad through a foundation year. The foundation year has given me the exclusive support required to further my self development and better prepare for the years to come. I had the chance to live in halls for the first 2 years, however I had to leave as during my second year as the pandemic had led the country to a lockdown and so I could no longer afford to live there as I had to leave the country to be with my family. I must say I appreciate how lenient the university halls were with allowing me to cancel my contract without penalising me for it. The content and quality of teaching along with the lecturers and staff support from day one were exceptional, even though the pandemic has made it tough on both staff and students to motivate, engagement is facilitated through one-to-ones and various resources for independent learning.

University of Greenwich is underrated university! To begin with - I completed work placement. University's employability services helped me to find a placement, prepared me for interviews and even checked my cv and cover letter. On the top of that they organise multiple seminars and workshops to improve your employability skills which is essential for such a competitive job market in London. I also participated in student exchanges - with University of Greenwich support we found a perfect fit for me in Spain where I was able to improve my Spanish language skills! Talking about university in general the support from academics is always outstanding. Prior to the covid thing we would meet on weekly basis with our personal tutor who is always here to help no matter is it personal or just something to do with your assignments. There are so many things I could say. But word limit doesn't allow me. If you are considering to apply do it! You will thank me latter

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.

Hi,

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you are disatisfied with your academic expeience and your personal tutor specifically. You are able to request a new personal tutor by getting in touch with your module leader and presenting your case of why you would like this change. We hope this helps anyone else looking to do so in the future. We also have a multitude of other facets of academic support that students are able to contact.

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.

Hi,

It is sad to hear that you had a bad experience living on the Avery Hill campus. We do have accomodation available on the Greenwich campus. The Avery Hill campus is located just outside of Etham high street, which is populated with grocery stores, clothes shops, restaurants, a cinema, historical sites such as Eltham Palace, and green spaces. There is something for everyone to enjoy, allowing people living on this campus to have many social outings in their area.

Additionally, we offer a very frequent and free bus shuttle service between the Avery Hill and the Greenwich campuses, with buses every 15 minutes during the day. Local buses, such as the 286, also travel between the two campuses for £1.50 for a single ride.

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.

Hi,

Thanks so much for your review! It is great to hear that you appreciate our historical campus. 

To join a society, you can visit the Greenwich Student Union website (seperate from the official university website). The site provides a list of what is on offer, how to join, and even how to start a new group yourself. 

For students based on the Medway campus, the GKSU website shows the societies on offer to you.

We have a great range of student groups covering loads of different interests, from cultural socieites like the Bangladeshi society, to ones focused on common interests, like the Harry Potter society.

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.
