Our college students will be taught at our school in London Greenwich and will have full access to all resources offered by Greenwich University. This includes the Student’s Union, Counselling Centre, Student Advice Service, and student clubs. Students will also have access to the extensive library services on Stockwell Street, part of the University of Greenwich.

The support team is always available to help you wherever you are on your learning journey. From practical advice to more intensive support – to make your time at the London Centre run as smoothly as possible.

Our bespoke social programmes are designed to provide students with the opportunity to socialise and immerse themselves in the local culture — sharing truly unforgettable experiences whilst being able to put their new English skills to the test in fun and natural environments.

Greenwich’s online Academic Skills Centre can help you improve your essay writing, research skills, presentation and exam techniques and any additional study skills you may need. You’ll also have access to one-to-one tutorials with academic skills tutors and workshop sessions with subject librarians. All workshops are free and run throughout term time.

Greenwich’s professional counsellors are on hand, should you need them, at any time during your studies.

I have a lot of international friends here at BUIC, and I’ve learnt so much from them. There is always a lot to do together both on and off-campus.

Sagar Nepal, Bangor University International College (BUIC)

I would recommend UGIC because it is based on the main University of Greenwich campus, a cosmopolitan university. At UGIC, there are students from all around the world, and I've made a lot of friends from exciting places."

Gozel Turkmenistan, University of Greenwich International College (UGIC)

I think one of the main reasons the IIM (pre-masters) has been so helpful is because the staff are so supportive and are always able to help me. Whether it is understanding a module or finding out how to sort accommodation, they will help you with everything. I’ve enjoyed studying at Bangor, the people are friendly, and the environment is also really peaceful and safe. It’s given me the best opportunity to succeed in my studies here in the UK.
