As part of its collaboration with KaMCOP, The University of Greenwich has developed the Greenwich Mentoring Programme, designed to help learners feel confident in applying for HE, raise aspirations, and enhance knowledge about the HE experience and future careers. Learners engaged in the programme benefit from a HE Mentor and an Industry Mentor, offering 10 weeks of mentorship with experts from specified careers sectors, as well as a secure online mentoring platform.

Greenwich is the university's largest campus and its historic buildings on the River Thames are often used as film sets, so don't be surprised if you see a few famous faces around the campus. The recently built £80-million Stockwell Street building houses state-of-the-art learning resources, including a high-tech library, film and TV studios, and one of Europe's largest teaching and learning green roof landscapes.

A few miles down the road from Greenwich is the Avery Hill Campus, on the edge of parkland and a short walk from Eltham High Street. As well as having teaching and sporting facilities, it is home to the Student Village, where most Greenwich students live. A recent £14-million investment includes two new buildings, four clinical skills laboratories and two floodlit, all-weather sport pitches. There's a free intercampus bus to Greenwich, and central London is a 30-minute train ride away.

The Medway Campus in Chatham Maritime, Kent, has teaching and living spaces within a few minutes' walk from each other. There are industry standard laboratories in science, engineering, pharmacy and natural resources, as well as a huge library. A new hangout for students is the Deep End, a £4.6-million social and entertainment space, which also has a quiet area where students can read or work on laptops. Just across the road from the campus is a dockside retail park, which has a nine-screen cinema, bars, restaurants and outlet stores. The campus is about 30 miles from central London and it has a dedicated university bus service to the other two campuses.
