All of London, one campus 

At Goldsmiths all your teaching, learning and support facilities are in one place. It creates a close-knit community feel, where you'll soon be bumping into friends in corridors, and lecturers in coffee shops.

The problem with some universities in London is you don’t really get much of that campus feeling...Goldsmiths was just really special because it had so much of that student community.

Limitless perspectives, one Goldsmiths

Goldsmiths academics are not interested in simply spoon-feeding you knowledge to regurgitate in exams. They want you to come with your own ideas and experiences that will challenge them and contribute to better learning for everyone. You'll be taught how to think, not what to think.

"The overall college atmosphere is open, individualistic, free and loud. Many people project themselves through their physical appearance and I have noticed that that brightens the look of the college and even New Cross."
