A new partnership with Adobe means that students at Goldsmiths can benefit from a full collection of industry-leading software within Adobe Creative Cloud, both whilst on campus and at home to create visually compelling content from anywhere.

Goldsmiths is the first Adobe Creative Campus in London, helping students enhance their digital skills, succeed in the classroom and gain an edge in the competitive modern workplace. 

David Minahan, Chief Information Officer at Goldsmiths said: “All enrolled students can take advantage of the Adobe Creative Cloud at no cost to them. The world is increasingly powered by digital interactions and artificial intelligence with visual digital media being the chosen method for many to communicate, collaborate and create.

“This pivotal partnership with Adobe will enable us to evolve our pedagogies and assessment methods as well as support our students and staff to develop digital literacy and digital skills. I am really looking forward to seeing what can be produced by the curious and creative minds of our community and these powerful tools”

The partnership with Adobe provides access to Adobe Express, Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, Adobe Acrobat, Lightroom, Premiere Pro, Premiere Rush, After Effects, Bridge, Lightroom Classic, Aero (Beta), Dreamweaver, Animate, Character Animator, Audition, Substance 3D Painter, Substance 3D Sampler, Substance 3D Designer, Substance 3D Stager, Dimension, Media Encoder and InCopy.

Adobe is running a series of  30-minute workshops to help users learn more about the new Adobe Express and Firefly AI platforms. The sessions will explore how educators can integrate Adobe software into teaching by creating simple videos, webpages, and graphics.

The programme allows students to engage more deeply in their learning, create projects like podcasts and documentaries, learn persuasive communication skills, take part in career-enhancing events, and access on-campus support from Adobe Student Ambassadors. It allows students to graduate with visual, audio and storytelling skills that can accelerate their time to employment and stand out when applying for jobs.

Instructions on how students and staff can download this software are available on the Goldsmiths website.
