Introduction

University of Greenwich has most satisfied students in London

Sunday Times table shows University of Greenwich has most satisfied students in London

Greenwich has scooped top spot in the London league table for student satisfaction, for the second year running. In the latest Sunday Times University Guide league table, published on 12 September, the university is ranked 26th for student satisfaction, out of 122 institutions in the UK, putting it ahead of all other universities in the capital.

The results see Greenwich climbing nine places in the Sunday Times table for student satisfaction, compared with a year ago - meaning that it is now in the top quarter of all universities in the UK.

The table is based on the National Student Survey, which asks all third-year students to rate their institutions on a variety of topics, from the quality of their teaching and equipment to their personal development.

Greenwich topped the Sunday Times national league table for student satisfaction for some of its individual subject areas. Star performers were Civil, Chemical and other Engineering courses; Law; and Medical Science and Pharmacy, which were all rated as number one in the country for student satisfaction in these subjects.

The Sunday Times says: "The most satisfied students [in the country] are studying medical science and pharmacy at the University of Greenwich." More than 96% of students studying in these areas said they were satisfied with their degree courses - which was the highest score in the whole of the UK, across any subject.

Greenwich is also ranked as a national top five university for student satisfaction in Business, Management, Performing Arts and Tourism; in sixth place for Maths; and in the national top ten for Politics.

The Sunday Times also places Greenwich in the top quarter of all UK universities when it comes to highest graduate starting salaries.

Tessa Blackstone, Vice-Chancellor of the university, says: "This is an important vote of confidence from our students. These results show how important it is for us to listen to students' views and to act on them. Our ongoing challenge is to make sure that we continue to give every student a great experience of higher education at Greenwich".

Maninder Singh, President of the Students' Union, says the university's high rating is well deserved. "The feedback I receive from students is really positive, not just in terms of the quality of teaching and facilities, but for the guidance and support throughout their time at Greenwich," he says.

"Studying at the University of Greenwich has given me both international experience and a great degree! I know that I have a great career ahead of me thanks to the preparation that I have had at Greenwich.”

The MArch Architecture programme is for graduates of architecture with ARB/RIBA Part 1 who wish to gain exemption from ARB/RIBA Part 2. Our aim is to prepare students for the complexities of contemporary architectural practice by providing a rich mix of rigorous academic and professional teaching. All students choose a design unit within which to undertake their project work, each unit has a different specialism across the themes of; digital surrealism, film and animation, bio-technology, art practice and contemporary culture. The units are led by a highly experienced team of internationally recognised design tutors. The first year of the programme starts by developing advanced skills in urban design and digital representation that can be applied to a major building project in conjunction with a professionally mentored 'Design Realisation' technical report. Additionally students are exposed to current theoretical trends that form the basis for ambitious speculations on contemporary architecture. The second year of study takes the aspirations of the students work to a higher level of professional and academic engagement with an integrated advanced architectural design project and a specialist theoretical and, or, technological thesis developed with respect to the students own interests and passions. The part-time mode is intended for students working in a supportive architectural practice and requires attendance two days a week over three years. The Department is based in a new state of the art building designed by the award winning architects Heneghan Peng; it is equipped with fourteen rooftop landscapes, cutting edge digital workshops, extensive design studios, a world-class library and two gallery spaces.
