General description

The University of Greenwich was founded in 1890, previously existing as Woolwich Polytechnic and Thames Polytechnic, before being granted university status and renamed in 1992. Serving around 21,000 students, the majority of which are undergraduate, it is made up of four faculties: Engineering and Science, Education and Health, Architecture, Computing and Humanities, and the Business School. Situated on the banks of the River Thames, the university’s main campus is in what was the Old Royal Naval College – a UNESCO World Heritage site in Greenwich, southeast London. It features three baroque buildings that were designed by the celebrated architect Sir Christopher Wren in the late 17th century. The campus is often cited as one of the greenest in the UK.

University of Greenwich is a popular institution for international students with over 2,500 EU and international students currently studying on a Bachelor's or Master's degree. You can choose from over 400 programmes across a vast range of subjects, including law, computer science and business. With a total student body of 38,000 students from over 140 nations across the world, you will benefit from a diverse and world-class learning experience right in the heart of London.
