ILD | The Institute for Lifecourse Development

Developing socially effective and economically sustainable lifecourse solutions to the most significant challenges facing society.

I had hoped to start my training for the ambulance service at Greenwich as I knew it was one of the most respected degrees of its type in the country. I also found the lecturers had real drive and passion for the teaching and, most importantly, for supporting its students.

- Gareth Harper, BSc Hons Paramedic Science (London)

I loved the experiences and learning environment of Greenwich Uni, it really helped me grow as a person. All my tutors and lecturers are amazing at their job! They guided me in the right direction and were there for me whether I needed academic or personal support.

- Christina Christoforou, Early Years, BA Hons

The wonderful lecturers and staff at the University of Greenwich have supported me through my degree and were everything I could have asked for. I have taken full advantage of all the social outlets and activities that are set up for students and have made some lifelong friends.

- Claire Young, BSc Hons Children's Nursing

Greenwich was my first choice, as it had a reputation for high-quality teaching with research, as well as diverse statutory, voluntary and private-sector placement opportunities. From the moment I embarked on the programme, I have not been disappointed.

- Mikhail Mohammed, BA Hons Social Work
