"It is a great privilege to lead the University of Greenwich, one of the largest and most respected universities in London. The university has strong traditions going back over 100 years and history has provided us with campuses that are amongst the most celebrated in the world.

One of the key roles for universities is to anticipate the future. Today our research and teaching are nationally and internationally renowned for their contribution to science and society. Greenwich staff regularly receive prestigious awards that recognise their leading roles in academia.  Our excellent students and distinguished alumni come from all walks of life and many different cultures. It is a passion for learning and a quest for knowledge at the University of Greenwich that is unique to them all.

You are very welcome to visit the university on-line or in person and I hope that someday you will be able to join our growing community."
