“Goldsmiths’ degree award assures that our programmes are delivered to the highest academic standards and provides a valued qualification with international currency”

Professor Steve Dixon, President, LASALLE College of the Arts

Goldsmiths validates undergraduate and taught postgraduate degree programmes across LASALLE’s three faculties of Design; Fine Art, Media and Creative Industries; and Performing Arts, through which 1,400 of LASALLE’s students are enrolled on programmes leading to a degree from Goldsmiths.

Goldsmiths is incredibly proud of its longstanding academic partnership with LASALLE, which has been enriched through staff exchange, research collaborations and student projects.

Over half of Goldsmiths’ academic departments are involved in the LASALLE partnership. Goldsmiths’ Academic Links help to assure the quality and standards of the degree award.

Academic staff and students from across both institutions have further strengthened the partnership through collaborative learning, teaching and research activities supported by the Goldsmiths-LASALLE Partnership Innovation Fund, which encourages innovative collaboration and cross-partnership working.

Partnership Innovation Fund (PIF) 

The Partnership Innovation Fund (PIF) is an initiative led by Goldsmiths’ International Development & Academic Partnerships (IDAP) team designed to support the growth and development of Goldsmiths’ academic partnership with LASALLE College of the Arts.

The fund aims to encourage, facilitate and foster innovative collaboration and cross-partnership between colleagues and students. It is also a valuable opportunity for staff across our community to professionally develop, and strengthen their skillset and professional profile through international collaboration.

The fund is accessible to all academic and professional services staff members from all departments at Goldsmiths and LASALLE. Applicants can apply for funding of up to £5,000 towards collaborative projects led jointly by both Goldsmiths and LASALLE staff that bring mutual benefits at both institutions. A broad scope of projects that align with the PIF’s aims and outcomes can be considered for funding.
