Why learn English at Goldsmiths?

Goldsmiths is a global learning community. We celebrate this diversity and welcome all international students. We specialise in English language and academic writing in a way that is directly related to your studies. So, if you are considering a Goldsmiths degree and English is not your first language, we have a wide range of programmes to ensure your success. 

  • Our language and academic courses focus on the four key skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening.
  • We look at these skills in academic contexts such as cultural or media studies, and in practices such as art, design, performance and music.
  • As a student here, you will gain knowledge in how to approach your subject through the English language, and develop core linguistic and academic skills.
  • From one-year International Foundation Certificates and Graduate Diplomas to intensive Pre-Sessional programmes, our courses introduce you to the content you’ll study, giving you the opportunity to experience the key themes of your chosen subject.
  • We'll introduce you to Goldsmiths’ unique learning environment, so you can enjoy the wider culture of the University.
