The University of Greenwich is based on three historically rich campuses: the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, a World Heritage Site; Avery Hill, Eltham, comprised of beautiful 19th- and 20th-century buildings listed by English Heritage; and Medway at Chatham, a splendid Edwardian redbrick campus dating back to 1903. The rich heritage of these buildings, combined with the significant investment in high-tech learning and research facilities, provides an environment which stimulates enquiry, celebrates scientific endeavour, and promotes wellbeing.
We offer more than 200 undergraduate degree programmes across our campuses and we have a diverse community of students from 160 countries. Recent awards include a Teaching Excellence Framework silver rating and an Outstanding rating by Ofsted for primary education training. All areas of the university produce high-impact research outcomes that provide new understanding and insight to a number of challenging global issues, bringing a vitality and relevance to our teaching. We have exceptional teams in the areas of natural resources and computational modelling.
15,500 students are studying in the UK either at the University or within our network of partner colleges. We also have an extensive trans-national education (TNE) provision which see some 13,500 students studying Greenwich validated/franchised programmes in a range of countries overseas.
