University of Greenwich

The University of Greenwich was established in the year 1891. But back in the date, it was called Woolwich Polytechnic, which is the second oldest polytechnic in the UK. Frank Didden founded it. In 1992, it was granted university status by the major government and was renamed the University of Greenwich in 1993. Today, the University finds its place in one of the top educational institutions in the world. The University of Greenwich has a wide range of courses available.


The University left its old campus of Bathway Quarter in Woolwich and moved to the current main campus in Greenwich. Based on the banks of Thames. Today, it has three campuses, two in London and the other in Kent, England.

Avery Hills and Greenwich campuses are located in London. And the Medway campus is in Kent. The infrastructure of all the three campuses is brilliant, just like it should be for a standard international university. Equipped with great sports facilities, laboratories, theatre, and gyms, it ensures a nice environment for the educational growth of the students.


The University is rated as one of the most environment-friendly in the UK by the People & Planet Green League Table.

Also, 84th in the Times University Guide 2020. And 90th in the Guardian University Guide 2020.
