Cutting-edge content

We ensure that what you study is up-to-date and relevant to the workplace. This year we are launching several new modules and many of our other modules and courses have been reviewed and revised. A flexible approach

Our students are busy professionals who are often juggling the commitments of work and home. To help them get the most out of their studies, we offer part-time options where possible and try to schedule our modules sympathetically.


We have 25 years’ experience as a trusted provider of health and social care education and training in the south-east of England and our academic staff have both practical expertise and academic skills to develop and support professional learning.


The University of Greenwich is at the forefront of research and innovation in the field of health and social care with many published authors on our staff disseminating their expertise to enrich the student experience. For instance, social workers and trainees can enter a virtual environment in Second Life. By deploying an avatar, a virtual being, in practice exercises they are able to develop their skills to carry out home visits. We also offer clinical skills laboratories which replicate NHS wards, allowing trainee health professionals to get real hands-on experience.
