The United Kingdom (UK) is a country with a wealth of history, a host of industrial links, a multicultural community and an array of opportunities for you to make the most of. The UK is easy to travel to, with daily flights arriving from across the world. Two major international airports, Heathrow and Gatwick, are within an hour's travel of our Greenwich and Avery Hill Campuses. Medway Campus is only an hour away from Gatwick.

The UK's cafés and restaurants serve cuisines from around the world as well as traditional British food such as fish and chips and Sunday roast.
