Goldsmiths has a long tradition of encouraging students from all social backgrounds to study at our university. Many of our students come from London and the local area but many come from other countries and different parts of the UK. We see our diverse range of students as one of our strengths.
Outreach takes place across the College and includes research, learning and teaching, specific course provision within the Department of Social, Therapeutic and Community Studies and regeneration and community projects.
The broad role of the Outreach team is to lead the implementation of the College’s sustained outreach activity with non-traditional learners.
The team is responsible for on and off-campus activity for the following non-traditional audiences: disabled students; students from low-participation neighbourhoods; students with no heritage of higher education in their family; students from low socio-economic groups; black, minority and ethnic groups; younger age students (including primary schools) and care leavers.
This team coordinates the Partner Schools network, working closely with colleagues in Educational Studies. The team also works closely with academic departments to ensure that they attract a diverse cohort of learners and in the local community to ensure the College is attractive and accessible.
To foster an environment committed to and supportive of diversity, the free exchange of ideas, tolerance and equal opportunities, and to work to raise aspirations and widen access to higher education in general and to the College in particular.
