What is it like to study at university of Greenwich?
  • Cultural diversity. UoG is very inclusive and welcomes students from every nationality with open arms. Most of my close colleagues were European/Asian.
  • Culturally Rich. University of Greenwich is blessed with Royal buildings and a lot of English history is tied to that place. Cutty Sark. Painted Hall. Old Naval College and right across, you have the Maritime Museum.
  • A Great “Annoyance” for Tourists. Because of the last point I mentioned, you’d find that tourists are always standing aloof on the pavement staring at something in the sky or taking group selfies. And yup, this is always gonna be when you need to get to classes. Especially when you’re running late. They’ll be using their weapons of mass photography to block every passage and every pavement; right from the train station till you get to your lecture building.
  • Celebrity Watch. Just to buttress how beautiful and culturally rich UoG is, it’s always in demand. By filmmakers. If it’s not Sherlock Holmes today, it’s Pirates of the Carribeans. Even the most expensive series ever, the Queen, is largely being shot at UoG. (The entrance in the film is where we queue to get our graduation gowns 🙂 ) So you get to peep from classes and watch certain scenes and properly even meet the actors if you’re lucky to pass by at the right time.
  • Lateness. As a culminative effect of all the aforementioned points. You’ll 90% of the time get to classes late because “Jack Sparrow” is filming and you’d have to walk round for another 20 minutes to the other entrance.

These are in addition to the great lecturers and state-of-the-art library that you’d be reaping the benefits of. UoG is also easily accessible via bus, car, bike, trains, tube, river. Perfect combination, if you ask me.
