Coming to University is going to be an exciting time and whilst you're currently waiting to get your A Level Results or you're waiting for your offer to be confirmed, you'll probably be questioning is there anything I can do ahead of time?

We've come up with a list of three things you can do ahead of time!

Research the local area
If you're coming to Greenwich, Medway or Avery Hill, then it's well worth investigating your local area. Useful things to check out are where the nearest supermarkets are, where your local general practice is, so you can register and don't forget to find a dentist either.

Plan your commute
Many students are home students at Greenwich and so already live in London. In the summer months it's bright for a long time and easy to walk around London, but as it gets darker you may need to consider public transport. If you're looking to limit your time on public transport, see if you can practice a cycle route. Map it out and go for a practice ride.

Research student groups
We've got a range of Sports clubs and Societies. Why not take a look on our website and see if there are any you are interested in joining?
