Excel in your chosen field and become a confident and resilient professional.

Our courses are designed with employability in mind. They develop your intellectual curiosity and provide the vocational skills and work experience you need to advance your career.

Skills for employment

Courses at Greenwich have employability skills at the core, including built-in opportunities to develop the attributes you need for graduate roles.

Over half of our students undertake a work placement to gain the vital skills and experience that are valued by employers. Many of our courses can be taken with a 'sandwich' year, which is a dedicated placement in industry.

Once you enrol, you use what we call an Employability Passport to extend and accredit your developing skills. Our courses also embody our Graduate Attributes, so you emerge as a creative and ambitious individual who strives for excellence and is determined to succeed.

The result is that Greenwich graduates have an excellent employment record. 70% of our employed graduates achieve graduate-level roles within six months of completing the course.

Learning at Greenwich

Our teaching and learning facilities make full use of our physical and digital infrastructure.

We offer superb study and social spaces on campus. You'll find library facilities on all campuses, including our award-winning library at Stockwell Street in Greenwich, and the Drill Hall Library, which holds 150,000 volumes.

With our lecture capture technology, you can revisit lectures as often as you like, which is particularly helpful when you're preparing for assessments. Our innovative learner analytics system allows you and your personal tutor to identify any additional support you may need throughout your journey.

There is a wide range of extra-curricular activities to support your learning. Each subject area has a student-led academic society that contributes to our strong student community.

Taught by passionate people

We employ well-qualified teaching staff, many with formal teaching qualifications. Many of our academics have also previously worked in business or industry. This enables us to provide up-to-date and industry-relevant courses that become accredited by professional bodies.

Our lecturers are as passionate about sharing knowledge as they are about their subjects. They are ideally placed to help you reach your potential. Our students often remark how our academics will go the extra mile to help them excel at their chosen subject.

These principles earned us a national Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) Silver rating in 2017 and Higher Education Academy National Teaching Fellowships for a large number of our teaching staff.

  • Having lecturers who are willing you to do your best makes all the difference.

Our students truly appreciate the level of support we offer at every stage of the student journey.

You'll have a personal tutor to help with your academic needs, from essay-writing support to study skills. Our student ambassadors will help you settle in and get the most out of your time here. You can even apply to become one yourself – it's a great thing to put on your CV.

Then there's our employability team, which offers advice and tools to help you build the skills and experience that employers are looking for.

There's a Student Centre on each campus, so it's easy to drop in for advice.
