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.” Read about Ellen’s experience at ellengreenwich.wordpress.com

The Medway School of Pharmacy is a unique collaboration between the University of Greenwich and the University of Kent. Since opening in 2004 we have become recognised as an established school of pharmacy, by the regulator The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC). We are delighted to have achieved our initial objective of having our Master of Pharmacy (MPharm) graduates working as pharmacists in various careers both locally and nationally. The School is located at the heart… [+] of the new multi-university campus development at Chatham Maritime in Medway, Kent. This splendid Edwardian redbrick and ivy-clad campus – dating from 1903 – has benefited from over £20 million capital investment since 1996. Extensive new laboratories and research facilities have opened and the campus has developed into a major higher education centre. The Medway School of Pharmacy mission is “to produce, through innovative teaching and research delivered in a supportive and caring environment, high-quality professional graduates committed to lifelong learning”. Student care and support is therefore an essential part of our School culture and we provide personal tutors to maintain regular contact and offer confidential help with either academic or personal problems. We are therefore extremely pleased and proud that our students voted the School the best institution in the country for overall programme satisfaction (National Student Survey 2009), and we consistently score very highly in this survey. We have designed an innovative patient-focused MPharm programme and believe that the future of pharmacy lies in meeting patients’ needs through working in partnership with patients, other health-care professionals, the NHS and industry. Pharmacists are the only health-care professionals with a unique knowledge of medicines from manufacture to their use in patients, and pharmacy offers a wide range of career options. Our MPharm programme already provides a significant amount of work placements to enhance the clinical learning, competencies and employability skills of our graduates. The changing role for pharmacists and other healthcare professionals continues to allow the School to also develop and refresh a portfolio of postgraduate courses, including a multidisciplinary Postgraduate Certificate in Independent and Supplementary Prescribing and a Master’s programme in Medicines Management. As a dynamic school we have a commitment to the provision of lifelong learning and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) as exemplified by our Skills for MURs course, which has now attracted many thousands of practising pharmacists. Research is critical to the success of the School and takes place alongside teaching under the guidance of our Director of Research. The School has made a significant investment in facilities and equipment and continues to evolve a strong collaborative and interdisciplinary approach to research. We have already had successful research grants from research councils such as the MRC and BBSRC, as well as from charities and industrial collaborators such as Pfizer. We currently have a vibrant PhD student group with over thirty candidates currently researching with various staff members across our three areas of biological sciences; chemistry and drug delivery; and clinical and professional practice. The School has an experienced and dedicated team of staff comprising academic scientists, pharmacists and teacher practitioners seconded from the NHS, together with administrative and technical personnel.
