Student Reviews

Uni of Greenwich isn't great
Anonymous rated 2 out of 5 stars

For comp sci, don't bother coming here because none of the lecturers or tutors care about you or your degree, they will not help you even if you ask and they don't have a clue on what's even going on half the time when they literally teach the whole module, so if you are considering studying here for comp sci, don't

opinions about my school
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

they have advantageous facilities and lecturers with high skills and knowledge about their fields however, they teach in my mother tongue, which I personally find would be beneficial for my English-enhancing progress

No complaints, yet no overiding positive feedback. The campus is fantastic and the lecturers okay. Fellow students are varied, some care others do not.
