Medway Students


Medway Students are those who are attending the University of Greenwich while studying at the Medway campus. Medway students are represented by the Students’ Union of the University of Greenwich if they attend the University of Greenwich, however they are also represented by GK Unions (link), which is Greenwich and Kent Unions together.

GK Unions offers more services at Medway campus, as Students’ Union of the University of Greenwich is primarily based between Avery Hill and Greenwich campuses.

This means that as a Medway student, you can access the services of both GK Unions and SUUG. 

GK Unions provides an Advice Service, Societies, Sports Clubs, and activities, all on the Medway campus that all Medway students can access. 

The website for the partnership  can be found at www.gkunions.co.uk. Also, you can contact the GK Unions team on 01634 888989 or visit them in the Student Hub on Medway Campus.

Medway students have particular shared experiences while at Greenwich, and so are represented by a Mature Students’ Officer who is elected to represent their interests to the University of Greenwich Students’ Union and the University.


Medway campus societies

Medway students are encouraged to join the student societies run through GK Unions as they are based at Medway Campus. You can find a full list of these societies on the GK Unions website.

The Students’ Union Advice Services at Greenwich and Medway give free, independent and confidential advice to University of Greenwich students on academic and welfare problems. We will not report what you have told us to the University, unless you want us to, or in rare situations (particularly if your welfare is at serious risk). See: www.suug.co.uk/welfare www.gkunions.co.uk/advice The only thing we cannot advise on is your Student Visa or Immigration status. Students seeking advice on visa or immigration issues should contact the University International Student Advice Service (ISAS) for assistance.
For further information, please see http://www2.gre.ac.uk/current-students/support/isas
All students are entitled to support from the Study Skills tutors at the University. There are also a lot of online resources. See: www.gre.ac.uk/studykskills for details.
If you want to practice your English conversational skills, find out about Language Connect groups at http://wp.me/p42w1y-o . These groups are available for all students.
In our opinion, nearly all international students have the skills to communicate effectively if they’ve got the confidence. The Language Connect groups are a great way to build your confidence, and help you take part in academic and social group activities.
