  • Greenwich is a fantastic university. The Accounting and Finance department is very strong with excellent lecturers and a good balance between coursework and exams.

  • I managed to secure an internship at IBM UK, which I considered a great feature in my university career. The guidance given to me by the Placements Office, in this regard, under the Sandwich Programme scheme was greatly appreciated.
