Applied Professional Studies

If you want a university-level qualification, but can't find the kind of learning programme you're looking for – or the time to attend the classes – we have the answer: design your own degree programme using the University of Greenwich Applied Professional Studies degree framework.

It means you can create your personalised programme in line with your career goals and your current circumstances. And it's a great way to receive academic recognition for skills and knowledge you've already developed, formally or informally, and have it count towards your qualification with us.

What you learn on this programme will inform your working practices, and help you identify further learning opportunities as they arise. For example, as part of a workplace project you've been asked to participate in, a practice or process you want to improve, or simply knowledge you want to develop. You tutor will help you recognise these opportunities, and design projects and other learning based on them. What's more, you can complement your work experiences by taking modules from other university programmes.
