Greenwich is seriously the nicest part of London! It’s a lovely little suburb, with great little shops, pubs with atmosphere and character, and the park, which is beautiful no matter what time of year. The one thing it isn’t is cheap, but the eagle eyed among you will be able to find the right deals and cheaper nights out in the city – New Cross is a short bus ride away and has plenty of nice, cheap(er) pubs. The course itself was great, with the lovely accommodation being the crowning touch of my experience.

    The university of Greenwich is a great place to study and meet people. The Medway campus has a lot of social events but you may need to travel door them. It's in a lovely country setting close to the sea front. For environmental science it's the perfect uni.
