Why study Computing at Goldsmiths? 

It’s the perfect time to get into computing. And at Goldsmiths we’re offering our own particular brand. From prototyping becoming policy to the role of video in interactive media, computing here is interdisciplinary; we want to develop the discipline and the world around it.

We want you to graduate with a computing degree that has weight in the real world, so you'll be taught to apply your study of computing to a whole range of real-life situations and to many industries within the creative arts and business sectors. You'll learn all elements of computing including cloud computing, computer science, computer information and computer programming. And, because you apply computing to other subjects such as music and media when you’re here, you’ll be able to think on your feet and adapt within this evolving field so that you're prepared for your future computing careers. 

Study abroad

The Department of Computing offers an Erasmus scheme which enables you to live in a European city for part of your degree.

"Goldsmiths unique atmosphere is good for free thinking and relaxing"

I found out about Goldsmiths through the internet and friends who were ex and current students. My previous attempt at completing a degree course was at Loughborough University, but I didn’t enjoy the course I’d chosen, and wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. I then spent a couple of years working and finally decided it was again time to further my education. 

After starting at Goldsmiths, I found the atmosphere completely different to any other universities I had been to. This was a good thing as I found the unique atmosphere to be good for free thinking and relaxing. The course was nicely laid out with year one as a foundation setter for the rest of the course being very comprehensive. I have been very happy with the course, and the opportunities and knowledge it has so far provided me.
