LIFE IN GREENWICH, LONDON

20


London is the No.1 city in the world for students – and at Greenwich, you get to experience the capital at its best. One of the many reasons that students come to the University of Greenwich is its location, which offers the excitement and attractions of London coupled with the countryside charm of Kent. Capital of the UK and home of the 2012 Olympics, London needs no introduction. A thriving global metropolis with something for everyone, the city is as famous for its retail, restaurants, architecture and culture as it is for Buckingham Palace and Big Ben. Whether it’s science, history, art, design or fashion that interest you, London has a huge

range of world-class museums and galleries to explore – many of which are free! Just outside London, the county of Kent boasts a wealth of scenic countryside and coastal resorts: tourist attractions include Leeds Castle and Canterbury Cathedral, and local towns have a range of shopping, entertainment and leisure on offer when you are taking a break from studying. Medway also has excellent links to the rest of the county, and the campus is close to the historic city of Rochester.

*(QS rankings – Best Student Cities 2018)

Museums and Galleries

Theatre and Cinema

London has nearly 750 art galleries and museums – ranging from large institutions like the National Gallery, Tate Modern and Science Museum to small, specialist studios such as the Photographer’s Gallery near Leicester Square and the Theatre Museum in Covent Garden.

London has a thriving and diverse theatre life, with major musicals and plays running in the West End as well as independent productions playing in local theatres across the capital. You will also find cinemas showing everything from blockbusters to independent and arthouse pictures; cinemas in Greenwich include the Greenwich Picturehouse and a multiplex at The O2.

Music London offers everything from global artists performing in large stadiums to live bands playing in bars, pubs and clubs. International classical, opera and ballet stars also perform throughout the year at the Royal Festival Hall, Barbican Centre, Royal Opera House and Albert Hall.

Shops From chain stores on Oxford Street and upmarket shops in Covent Garden, to open-air stalls and street markets throughout the city, London caters for every taste and budget. Further afield, Kent’s enormous Bluewater Shopping Centre is only a train ride away from Greenwich. 21


STUDENT EXPERIENCE There’s a whole world of entertainment, societies, sports and fun to be had at Greenwich.

By joining one of the many clubs and societies on offer, you will discover new passions – and even learn skills that will help you succeed in your career.

Greenwich Students’ Union The Students’ Union is a democratic organisation run by students for students. As well as representing your rights and interests, the Students’ Union is at the heart of university life: you can play a sport, perform, campaign, volunteer for a cause, start your own group, or get even involved by serving on a committee or running for election. The Students’ Union also provides support and advice to help you have a great time at Greenwich, and we run a range of events and services to help you settle into student life once you arrive. Membership of the Students’ Union is automatic when you enrol at UGIC. Learn more at www.greenwichsu.co.uk 22

"There is a lot to do in and around the university campus. Every Thursday, a bunch of us will play football in Avery hill which is quite fun and allows you to meet other students from different places" Henry, Nigeria IYZ Business & Management

Did you know...?

There are over 100 student clubs and societies offering a vast range of sports, groups and activities.


Sports & Fitness Sport plays a major part in university life here at Greenwich. Whether you want to compete, play or just looking for a way to keep fit and have fun, you will find plenty of activities and team sports to get involved in.

CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY From the moment you arrive at UGIC, our Employability and Careers Service can help you become a work-ready graduate with professional skills and experience.

24


To prepare for today’s competitive job market, students often need to think about developing professional skills and enhancing their employability while still at university. Statistics show that employers prefer to hire someone with six months of experience rather

than a new graduate – even one with an amazing academic record. It’s therefore essential for students to undertake work experience so that they can demonstrate commitment, develop skills and learn about their chosen field before they graduate.

Employability and Careers Service (ECS)

Work experience

The ECS team supports students with one-to-one careers advice, CV/cover letter guidance, interview practice sessions, and help with finding and securing placements or internships. They will also help you to build the skills and experience employers are looking for – so that you have the best chance of landing that first graduate role.

Many of our courses offer you the chance to take up an internship or work placement as part of your studies: in addition to gaining invaluable experience, you could even end up with a graduate job offer as a result. Students can also augment their experience by applying for part-time roles at the University through the Student Ambassadors Programme.

Her career really took off after an interview on CNN’s Inside Africa programme, which is watched by 300 million viewers.

Soloman Wifa Partner Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLB Law 1994 HonLLD 2012

Solomon Wifa is a private equity partner at the London office of top international law firm, Willkie Farr & Gallagher, which he recently joined in 2015. Born in Nigeria, Solomon came to the UK at the age of 17. By 2010, at the age of 37, he made his mark in the legal community as he became the youngest-ever managing partner of his predecessor firm O’Melveny & Myers, a leading international firm advising some of the world’s largest private equity firms. Of his career path to the law, Solomon says, “My childhood dream was to be

a doctor but after miserably failing chemistry at school, my teachers said I would be better suited to the arts and humanities. So for me, it was going to be law or maybe economics or architecture. I already had a sister and uncle who were qualified lawyers and so it felt right, it felt familiar.” However, he cites his proudest moment as winning a reprieve for a pro bono client on death row in Jamaica, a very different case from the corporate world in which he normally practices.

Kamal Farid Entrepreneur and Engineer

BEng Hons Civil Engineering, 2017 When Kamal travelled to the UK from Egypt to study, he didn’t anticipate that his dissertation might have the impact to make a revolutionary change in the construction industry and to become his new venture. Kamal decided to use his dissertation to focus on solving three of the UK’s biggest infrastructure challenges: carbon emissions, rainwater runoff and winter flooding. Although this was not an approved topic at the time, with a little persistence he managed to persuade his tutor to change their mind. Kamal’s solution was Carbon Negative Permeable Pavement System (CNPPS), the first recycled

30

road surface that absorbs carbon during manufacturing and reduces runoff by allowing rainwater to soak through. After developing the concept, Greenwich i3 Centre offered him training in business development and mentoring, plus materials and facilities to turn his idea into a product. Kamal has now raised the seed funding for CNPPS and will launch a new round of funding in March 2019. “It was a tough journey, full of ‘no’s’ from different investors, but with dedication there is always a way forward”.


In 2017, Kamal Farid won the university’s Enterprise Challenge and in 2018 was a finalist in the Mayor of London’s Entrepreneur Competition, but, he says, he would not have been able to finance or research CNPPS without the support of the i3 Centre. 31
