Academic specialism

The institution has a long track record of solving problems for governments, charities, industry and other partners, with special expertise in computational engineering and natural resources. It also works in fields such as business analysis, computer modelling, fire safety, pain management, pharmaceuticals and sustainable development.

Greenwich was honoured with the award of two prestigious prizes in 2015. The Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Further and Higher Education recognised outstanding work by the Natural Resources Institute on cassava, a tropical root crop in Africa: through their expertise, university scientists have helped millions of people by improving crop production and boosting the incomes of rural farming communities.

Greenwich regularly invests in staff to further raise academic and teaching standards. All four faculties in the university benefit from the investment, allowing it to broaden and strengthen its expertise in a wide range of subjects. Since 2011, the number of staff with an accredited teaching qualification has increased by 40%, and the number with a doctorate by 20%.

The largest campus is centred on the Old Royal Naval College in Royal Greenwich, at the heart of a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the banks of the River Thames and next to Greenwich Royal Park. The Avery Hill Campus in Eltham enjoys a parkland setting, and the Medway Campus features redbrick Edwardian buildings in Chatham Maritime, Kent. All sites are served by excellent rail and bus links, and an inter-campus bus service.
