University of Greenwich

The university dates back to 1890, when Britain's second polytechnic was opened near the Thames at Woolwich.

The polytechnic pioneered the country's first part-time day-release and sandwich courses showing its innovation. The institution has merged with a range of specialist organisations over the years, giving it the diverse strengths it has today in subjects such as teacher training, architecture, engineering and history. University status was awarded in 1992.

There are three campuses that make up our university: Avery Hill, Greenwich and Medway. Individuals from more than 100 countries choose to study at Greenwich and the university is proud of its diverse student body.
