Notes to editors:
- GSM London (formerly the Greenwich School of Management) is a distinctive higher education provider that has been delivering degree-level education for over 40 years. We have campuses in Greenwich and Greenford and a study centre at London Bridge. Our partnership with Plymouth University means that our students receive a final qualification/degree awarded by one of the UK’s top modern universities. We currently have around 7,000 students studying for a range of business-related degrees
- The College differentiates itself from other providers in higher education by embracing the opportunities of diversity and inclusion. About 80%of our students live within 10 miles of their campus, 90% are Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME), 80% are mature and 16.6% are drawn from POLAR 1 and 2 postcodes (the largest percentage of any higher education institution in London).
- To meet the educational needs of this unusual, dynamic and entrepreneurial student base, we are pioneering strengths-based learning in the UK, in which we build on the life and work experiences of our students. We are also a pioneer in accelerated learning, having long offered students the opportunity to complete full degree programmes in two years of intensive study, rather than over three years with long breaks, as is the case in most universities. These accelerated programmes offer real benefit to students looking to get into the world of work as quickly as possible, particularly those from less privileged backgrounds who don’t have the luxury of dropping out of the workforce for longer than necessary.
