The Goldsmiths masterclass series for Year 12 students
From March to July, Goldsmiths offers a range of subject-based masterclasses that give Year 12 students the opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of teaching and learning at university level. Developed and delivered by leading academic staff, Goldclasses aim to stimulate enquiry, broaden knowledge of the subject area, and introduce students to a wider network of academics, undergraduate students and peers.
Some masterclasses relate closely to the school curriculum, enabling students to enhance their current studies. Others introduce new topics studied at university level, exposing students to subjects beyond the post-16 secondary syllabus. They are not revision lectures, but academic sessions that include:
- Stimulating lectures or workshops delivered by Goldsmiths academics
- The opportunity to discuss the topic and ask questions
- An introduction to the university admissions process
- The opportunity to hear about life as a Goldsmiths student from a current undergraduate
