Computing teaching and learning

We believe in learning by doing and giving space for creativity while making sure our curriculum is industry-relevant.

Primary page content

The Department of Computing offers a place where you can participate in, teach, communicate and exemplify a creative and socially aware form of Computing.

The Department encourages a broad view of the discipline and encourages both students and staff to consider their own practice within wider academic contexts.

To achieve the learning outcomes, students on all programmes experience a range of teaching/learning methods, including formal lectures, lab classes, workshops, seminars, one-to-one supervision, and professional training.

Learning by doing

At Goldsmiths, experiential exploration precedes theory. You will be working on projects from day one. By working on practical projects throughout your degree, you will build a relevant skillset for your future career.

Industry relevance 

Our curriculum is developed by practitioners to ensure that the skills you develop are relevant for the current job market and industry. For our new programmes we have industry advisory boards, made up of professionals who make sure that the curriculum will prepare you for the working world.

Space for creativity

We build creativity into all of our modules, even if you are not studying for a creative degree you will develop these skills by studying with us.
