The process for applying to the University of Greenwich is different for full-time and part-time students. See the steps below.

Apply for a full-time course (UK/EU)

You apply for a full-time course through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).

Completing your UCAS application form

You can apply for up to five choices of institution/course. This may include degree and non-degree programmes.

To apply for more than one course at Greenwich, you make a separate entry for each choice. The exception to this is if you're applying for a degree and an HND in the same subject, which may count as one choice. (If you wish to do this, please check with Student Recruitment first.)

For help completing your application and the latest application fee, see the UCAS "How to apply" guide.

Most of our courses are available to study part-time. However, please check the attendance requirements of your course before applying.

You may be able to change between full-time and part-time status once you have registered.

There is no closing date for part-time programmes, but we advise you to apply as early as possible and not to wait for examination results.

Progressing to your next course

Undergraduate Fast Track

If you are currently in the final year of a Foundation Degree or HNC/HND at Greenwich or one of our Partner Colleges, Fast Track could help you advance to a further course without the need to apply.

We have identified the foundation courses and HNC/HNDs that have a 'natural progression' to further courses also taught at Greenwich.

For example, students currently studying the FdA Professional Writing (QA) at North Kent College may progress onto year 3 of the BA Hons Media and Communications or the BA Hons Creative Writing.

Where there is such a progression route in place, our 'Fast Track' service offers eligible students a place in September 2020 without the need to apply. Eligible students can register to use this service here.

See full details of our fast-track programmes.


If you are looking to begin in September 2019 as a 'Top-up' or 'End-on' applicant, you may be eligible for lower fees.

For this, you must have successfully completed one of the following:

  • Higher National Certificate (HNC)
  • Certificate of Higher Education (CertHE)
  • Higher National Diploma (HND)
  • Diploma of Higher Education (DipHE)
  • Foundation degree
  • First degree without honours (i.e. ordinary degree or pass degree).

If you are progressing to an honours degree with the same study mode as before (full-time or part-time) and without a pause, you may be able to pay fees at a lower rate. Please contact admissions for further information.

Applying for an equivalent or lower-level qualification (ELQ)

If you are applying to study at the same or lower level as a qualification you already hold, you may not be entitled to student support and may have to pay your own tuition fees.

Find out more about ELQs.

If you are unclear about the student support you may be entitled to or the tuition fee you will have to pay, please contact us.
