Work placements

There are a wealth of work placements to take advantage of during your time at Goldsmiths, depending on your department and level of study


Goldsmiths recognises the value of work placements, and over 1,400 students at Goldsmiths currently undertake some form of placement that is related to their studies. Recent placement organisations have included:

We’ve made a commitment to increase this number over the next two years:

  • We have a dedicated Work Placements Manager, who works with academic departments to increase the number of placement opportunities for students
  • Some departments are looking at introducing additional work placement options to their undergraduate programmes
  • Staff at Goldsmiths have an extensive network of contacts and will support you in finding the right placement

In addition, practice-based assignments, where you can work on projects brought in by external organisations, are exciting elements of some programmes.

Both of these schemes give an added dimension to your studies and also enhance your career prospects.
