University of Greenwich

Postgraduate Study

  • The University of Greenwich offers a wide variety of taught postgraduate programmes, covering most academic subjects.
  • Students are taught by highly experienced, research active academics, many of whom also have considerable practical experience; on many programmes students run projects with external organisations, exposing them to both real world issues and to potential employers.
  • To support the work of the academics, external experts and speakers also provide inputs as part of mainstream teaching and as guest lectures and seminars.
