Graduate School at Goldsmiths

An interdisciplinary, intellectual space for postgraduate students

Our aims
The main aim of the Graduate School is to improve and enhance the Goldsmiths experience for all our postgraduate students. We aim to provide a strong and supportive infrastructure for postgraduate students throughout the College, building on the excellent work of academic and support departments, by providing facilities and training for all postgraduates, 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.

Some students, particularly those who are part-time or who might have significant personal commitments, may find it difficult to participate fully in College life in real time. We now have a Virtual Graduate School,, which is just as important to us as its physical manifestation. The Virtual Graduate School site allows people to take part in seminars, discussion groups and social fora, significantly enhancing their experience of postgraduate study at Goldsmiths.

The Virtual Graduate School is also 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. It allows you to get information about particular support for postgraduate students such as language training if your first language is not English; and access to materials and resources 24/7.
