Greenford, West London
London Campus by Greenford
Global Banking School (GBS) is a higher education provider working in partnership with several UK universities to deliver vocational, undergraduate, and postgraduate programmes in Banking and Finance, Business and Management, and Health and Social Care. The new Greenford campus is one of six sites across the UK including two others in London (Bow and Poplar), Manchester, Birmingham and Leeds and now teaches approximately 10,000 students nationwide.
We expect to have over 120 colleagues working at the campus by September 2021, the majority of whom will live within a reasonable commute of Greenford. Our students live, work and run businesses in the areas surrounding the campus. The skills and knowledge they obtain whilst studying with us is applied directly back into their workplaces and businesses, improving the prospects of families and communities.
The Greenford campus is now our global HQ and represents a significant investment into the heart of West London.
