ABOUT THE AREA

The Greenwich Campus is on a World Heritage Site on the banks of the River Thames. The university’s largest campus is centred on three baroque buildings designed by Sir Christopher Wren at the end of the 17th century. The Independent newspaper described it as “more breathtaking than the Versailles of Louis XIV”.

The university has recently invested £76 million in the new Stockwell Street building to house the extensive campus library, TV studios, editing suites and academic facilities for a range of disciplines. The Stephen Lawrence Gallery provides a showcase for the work of contemporary artists. Stockwell Street is just a short walk from the university’s buildings on the Old Royal Naval College site.

The university bookshop is located in the Mews Building on the grounds of the Old Royal Naval College. The campus also houses the tourist attractions of the Painted Hall and Chapel.

Greenwich is a bustling town with a great atmosphere fostered by markets, pubs, clubs and restaurants. Up the Creek, a comedy and cabaret club, offers up-and-coming names in stand-up and is a short walk from the campus. The borough is steeped in history. East meets west on the Greenwich Meridian line, which divides the hemispheres and marks longitude zero. The line runs through the courtyard of the 17th-century Royal Observatory and indicates the spot from which Greenwich Mean Time is calculated. Greenwich is home to the Cutty Sark, a 19th-century clipper ship, and the National Maritime Museum, as well as one of London’s finest Royal Parks.

FAQs

Choose your university and course

Before you choose

  • Talk to a careers/guidance adviser.
  • Visit www.ucas.com to get more information and compare the courses and universities that interest you. When you apply, you can select up to five choices.
  • Do a keyword search on UCAS – if there’s a specific course title or course combination you want to do, type it directly into the UCAS course finder engine.
  • Do your research carefully – check out university websites, as well as UCAS, so you get a real feel for the place.
  • Consider the course content and not just its title – English at one university is not the same as English at another university.
    Check the entry requirements – will you need specific subjects (including GCSEs) or work experience? Are you on track to achieve the grades you need?
  • Attend university open days – see our handy checklist for suggestions on things you could ask about. If you’re considering Anglia Ruskin, we’d love to see you at one of our undergraduate Open Days.
  • Get advice from friends, family and school staff – but don’t forget the ultimate choice is yours.
  • Try to get to a UCAS HE Fair where you can pick up prospectuses from lots of different universities and speak with their representatives.
  • Have you chosen courses with a range of entry requirements? Try to maximise your chances by making your ‘Insurance’ option a course with lower grade requirements than your ‘Firm’ choice.
  • Think about a range of universities with different entry requirements.
  • Above all you should be comfortable with your choices: it’s all about finding the ‘best fit’ for you.
