Large college with Greenwich campus goes bust – up to 3,500 students affected

A private college with campuses in Greenwich and Greenford teaching 3,500 students has entered administration.

GSM London was based at the former Greenwich Town Hall building and courses accredited by the University of Plymouth. 274 jobs are affected.

The institution focused on business courses and owned by a private equity firm.

The company behind the college stated they were unable to “recruit and retain sufficient numbers of students to generate enough revenue to be sustainable”.

Courses will continue to be taught until September when students must transfer. The college occupied a large amount of floorspace. Other parts of the building are to possibly see a “West End” type theatre created in future.


Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs and and pay to keep it going with hosting fees, URL fees and Theme costs adding into the hundreds of pounds.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.
