Why choose the University of Greenwich?

Teaching excellence

At the University of Greenwich we set high standards for teaching quality. Our staff include a winner of the Times Higher Education Most Innovative Teacher Award and several National Teaching Fellows, a status which recognises exceptional teaching.

Student achievement

Our students regularly win awards; recent prize winners include the recipient of a national tourism prize and a Student Midwife of the Year, while an innovative business idea from a University of Greenwich law student recently won him a trip to the Hong Kong office of law firm Eversheds.

These success stories reflect our long history of student achievement. The pinnacle of this is perhaps Nobel Prize winner Professor Charles Kao, ‘Godfather of Broadband’, who is one of our alumni.

Modern resources

The university continually invests in developing its three campuses. New buildings and improved resources include the addition of the state-of-the-art Stockwell Street library and academic building, and the development of the Dreadnought building into the central student hub and go-to place for students.  We are committed to providing the best learning environment for our students so they have all the necessary resources to succeed in their studies.

World-class research

Many of our research areas have been judged as having carried out research of the very highest quality – world leading in terms of originality, significance and rigour. A research breakthrough at the university’s Natural Resources Institute, for example, has been named as one of the ten most important discoveries to be made at a UK university over the past 60 years. A poll of UK academics recognised the institute’s work controlling the tsetse fly in Africa, which is helping to combat the fatal disease sleeping sickness.
