The history of the University dates back to 1890, when Woolwich Polytechnic was founded. In 1970, Woolwich Polytechnic merged with various other higher education institutions to form Thames Polytechnic. In the following years, Dartford College (1976), Avery Hill College (1985), Garnett College (1987) and parts of Goldsmiths College and the City of London College (1988) were incorporated, extending the range of subjects taught considerably.
In 1992, Thames Polytechnic was granted university status and renamed University of Greenwich and you can earn more about studying at University of Greenwich as an International Student by watching the video below:
