Goldsmiths Taster Days, previously known as Goldclasses, offer anyone thinking about attending university the opportunity to attend a lecture or workshop, find out more about courses at Goldsmiths, and talk to current students.

Who are these events for

Goldsmiths Taster Days are for anyone thinking about studying at university, although they have been designed in particular for students studying their first year of A-Levels, BTECs, or on Access courses.

What to expect

Each Taster Day consists of an hour-long lecture or workshop, followed by information about courses at Goldsmiths and a Q&A with a current student (where possible, this will be a student from the relevant department).

If the session is on campus, there will then be an optional campus tour of Goldsmiths.

Please check individual sessions for further details.

Information for School Groups

We have designed Goldsmiths Taster Days to be accessible for group bookings. As the sessions are run on the same timetable, groups can arrive together, go to separate subject sessions, then finish and leave together. We also welcome subject teachers and tutors bringing their whole group to a session. If you are interested in bringing a group, please email us.
