University of Greenwich International College (UGIC) is an embedded college of the University of Greenwich, offering routes to both undergraduate and postgraduate courses to international students, in partnership with the Oxford International Education Group.
International students can choose three types of incorporated programmes – the International Year Zero, which help students progress to the university from second year onwards of their undergraduate programmes. The International Year One is a combination of subject modules and English language courses and the International Incorporated Masters is meant for students looking for business and management courses at the university, but who do not qualify for direct entry.
Over 38,000 students from over 140 countries study at the University of Greenwich. More than 100 different student societies are on offer, meaning students can meet classmates with similar interests. Students can access a range of sports facilities and student centres that assist with academics, employability and their general wellbeing.
Based in London and Medway, the university is located in a well-connected spot. Its largest campus at Greenwich is a world heritage site. The breath-taking view of the River Thames and the bustling city life are bonuses for students who choose the campus to study.
