The University of Greenwich is holding an Open Day for prospective students on Saturday 8 December from 10am to 3pm at all three campuses in south-east London and Kent. The event is aimed at all those considering university next year.
All three magnificent, historic campuses will be open. They are in Greenwich, at the Old Royal Naval College within a World Heritage Site; in Avery Hill, south-east London, among 86 acres of parkland, and in elegant Edwardian red-brick buildings at Chatham Maritime, Medway.
Students and lecturers will be available to answer questions and show visitors around, and there will be displays and talks by staff. At the Greenwich Campus there will be short talk about the new Stockwell Street development at 11.30am in the Stephen Lawrence Building, followed by a brief visit to the site.
Free buses will take visitors between campuses to help them get a feel for the university and its full range of facilities. Transport will also be available to visit the university's newly refurbished Bathway theatre space.
"Taster sessions and introductory talks will be available to give the best possible idea of what it would be like to study at the university. This Open Day was arranged due to the overwhelming demand to come and view our campuses," says Beverley Woodhams, Head of Recruitment at the University of Greenwich.
The university is home to nearly 28,000 students, representing more than 100 countries across the world. The wide range of subjects available includes architecture and design, business studies, education, engineering, nursing and sciences. There are also excellent opportunities for further research and postgraduate study.
According to the latest National Student Survey, 85 per cent of Greenwich's
final-year students say that they are definitely or mostly satisfied with the quality of their degree courses. This rating was even higher than last year, which at the time was a record for the university.
Greenwich is officially the greenest university in the UK, according to the 2012 Guardian People & Planet Green League table, and carries out world-leading research.
