Goldstart offers you a chance to get to know your department, meet your coursemates and find out everything you need to know ahead of your arrival in September.

Our student community is made up of people from a huge range of backgrounds, with many being the first in their families to ever study at university and some who are joining after several years away from education. We appreciate that the thought of starting at university can be daunting, and we want to help.

That’s why we offer head start ‘taster days’ for home/UK foundation and undergraduate students as an opportunity for you to find your feet ahead of the hustle and bustle of Welcome Week, helping you feel ready to take the next step on your journey with us at Goldsmiths.

Each daylong programme will include:

  • a sample lecture or seminar from your academic department
  • a chance to meet academic staff
  • a session on study skills
  • a chance to hear tips from current students
  • an introduction to the Library
  • a tour of the campus
  • a social event to round off the day.

You’ll also find out about the range of services available to Goldsmiths students, including the Academic Skills Centre, Disability Support and the Mature Students Network, and there will be an opportunity to meet your Students’ Union.

Goldstart takes place on Goldsmiths campus in early September and is completely free. Students who have attended in the past highly recommend it – you will gain valuable experience, make useful contacts and start your journey to being a successful student.

Registrations for Goldstart 2018 have now closed.
