About the University of Greenwich and Scholarship
The university’s founding year was 1891, when Woolwich Polytechnic, the second-oldest polytechnic in the UK, opened its doors. Frank Didden founded it in October 1891 with Quintin Hogg’s assistance and his ideals. It initially included educational, social, and religious events, much like Hogg’s creative endeavor on Regent Street in London.
Due to its proximity to Woolwich Dockyard and the Royal Arsenal, it began to focus on education in 1894. William Anderson, director-general of the Ordnance Factories, served as a trustee and then a member of the board of governors. The first Woolwich Polytechnic School opened its doors in 1897, and day schools were also held there. A portion of Hammersmith College of Art and Building and Woolwich Polytechnic combined to establish Thames Polytechnic in 1970. As time went on, other colleges were absorbed, including Garnett College (1987), Avery Hill College of Education (1985), Dartford College (1976), and portions of Goldsmiths College and the City of London College (1988).
In 1992, the Major administration gave Thames Polytechnic, along with several other polytechnics, university status. In 1993, the institution was renamed the University of Greenwich. The Thames College of Health Care Studies formally amalgamated with the newly named University of Greenwich on January 1st, 1993, and became a full faculty of the university. It was itself the result of the amalgamation of three regional nursing and midwifery training institutions. The Natural Resources Institute (NRI), once a research division of the UK government, was merged into the university in 1996.
The university moved to its new main site in Greenwich in 2001, abandoning its previous major campus in the Bathway Quarter in Woolwich. With over 50 international organizations, government agencies, and multinational corporations (such as Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, BAE Systems, Airbus, GE Aviation, and Merck Consumer Health) participating in its research, Greenwich aims to improve social policy in the areas of health, education, science, engineering, and computing.
The first year of study in the academic year 2023–2024 may be subject to a sizable tuition price discount for EU students residing in the EU who have an offer to study with the institution. The University of Greenwich EU Bursary is assisting incoming EU students by providing a sizable price cut for the first year of study in 2023–2024 in response to the UK’s exit from the EU.
