The biggest difference here is probably the foundation year at Greenwich, do you feel you are requiring a foundation year for your course?

I don't understand what you mean. You realise the first year is a foundation course, right? You get no extra time on your undergraduate course.

OK good, you just confused me when you said in the same post that you both do and don't need it. In that case, I think you've made your decision then.

Sorry, if i have confused you.

Actually the problem is not about only Foundation year, it’s about the uni as well. Which is better Greenwich or Metropolita???

To my knowledge there's no massive difference. So in respect to that, that comes down to your personal opinion. Have you visited the unis? If so, what did you think?

Yeah, but in the videos they just talk. But i have seen the Greenwich campus from outside before.
Look wise, Greenwich University is in a very good place and the view of it is very beautiful.
Do you have any idea about these Universities?

Hi Farjanaeva :hello:

Congrats on your offers !:banana:

Some ways to narrow down the choices are:

- When picking a uni you can try and compare locations to see which one is more easily accessible to you
- You can try and compare the facilities of both unis- Greenwich has some virtual tours you can look at
-You can try and speak to students to try and get a feel for the uni

I’m a second year student (not studying computing) so I’m happy to answer any questions you have

I came to Greenwich really unexpectedly but I’ve been surprised in a really good way. I really do like the uni so I’m happy I decided to come here. There’s loads of opportunities for students to get jobs (and get paid really well) which has helped me immensely. I also love that McDonald’s is nearby

I study law, but because I work with the uni often I do know quite a lot of staff and the ones I’ve met have been nothing but friendly to me.

My teachers are good, they provide good resources and they teach in a way I understand. One of my teachers is so dedicated she snuck in to teach us despite the university strikes :eek:

The uni has been really good for me and has helped me quite a lot

Let me know if you’ve got any more questions

I wouldn’t do a Greenwich foundation year I did one, but Greenwich is a better uni than London met. You could do year 1 in london met and transfer to Greenwich for year 1 & 2
