Graduate School at Goldsmiths

An interdisciplinary, intellectual space for postgraduate research students

Our aims
The main aim of the Graduate School is to improve and enhance the Goldsmiths experience for all our postgraduate research students. We aim to provide a strong and supportive infrastructure for postgraduate research students throughout the College, building on the excellent work of academic departments and professional services, by providing facilities and training, and encouraging intellectual and social contact across disciplines.

Our vision
Central to our vision is that the Graduate School should be an interdisciplinary space, to encourage students to have intellectual and social contact with each other, which are less likely within individual academic departments.  The Graduate School hosts a series of interdisciplinary seminars and public lectures as well as the annual Goldsmiths Graduate Festival.  The newly refurbished Graduate Study Centre includes dedicated study facilities as well as a kitchen and soft-seating area where postgraduate research students can relax and engage with other students.

Virtual Learning Environment
The Graduate School Virtual Office on is where students are able to access information about postgraduate training and funding, academic and social events, and support. We hope that this will enhance interdisciplinarity, and help you to feel part of a wider community.
