Colombia University of Greenwich

Overview

The University of Greenwich is a popular university in London for Colombian students. Colombians study foundation, undergraduate (Bachelor) degree, and postgraduate (Master's) degree programmes with us.

You will be able to integrate quickly into the University of Greenwich and London/the South East of England: the UK has the second biggest population of Colombians in Europe, with most Colombians living in London. Also, there are many Spanish speaking people from around the world living in London.

When you have graduated, the connections you will build in the UK will be useful for your future career: the UK is the second biggest investor in the world in Colombia. In addition, the UK government wants to double trade with Colombia by 2015. There are many business and political activities to make this a reality. Being at a UK university means you will be very well positioned to take advantage of this initiative.

Popular subjects at Greenwich include International Business, Strategic Marketing, Economics, Finance, Banking, Law, Transport and Logistics, International Relations, Politics, Film, Cinematography, Design and Engineering. The University also teaches a 2 year MBA (International Business) which includes 1 year in work.

To join our programmes you will need to meet both academic and English language entry requirements before you start the programme. You need not wait until you satisfy all the entry requirements before you apply to study with us.
