"What I like most about Goldsmiths is that I can meet people from all over the world and we can all share our different ideas and perspectives."

Main details

I am currently studying MA in Applied Anthropology and Community Arts at Goldsmiths. As an international student, studying at Goldsmiths is an absolutely amazing and unforgettable memory – both the social and academic experiences I've had.

There are various types of fun activities held throughout the semester and societies (I joined the dance society during the first semester – great fun and I met lots of friends from other departments. We are now working on a dance video!). There are also lots of academic workshops and seminars provided for students.

What I like the most about Goldsmiths is that I can meet people from all over the world. Talking and sharing ideas with people who have different perspectives always opens my mind and reminds me there are different ways to look at the world.

My experience at the university has been good so far. Every day there is some event or the other on the campus, and the social life at Goldsmiths is amazing.

"After doing a degree in Film & Video Communication, I wanted to focus on working with non-fiction film content. I found out about Goldsmiths University through one of the alumni of my undergraduate college back in India. He did an MA in Visual Anthropology at Goldsmiths almost a decade ago. I did research about the university, and was very happy with the kind of diversified courses Goldsmiths had to offer. The courses offered are very specific to the core subject, yet uniquely experimental on what you want to pursue.

Though joining the university a week late, it wasn't too difficult to catch up with the lifestyle, as well as my studies. My experience at the university has been good so far. Every day there is some event or the other on the campus, and the social life at Goldsmiths is amazing.

Departemental tutors are very understanding and always ready to provide support and clear your doubts. The atmosphere on campus is very friendly and warm, and the location of the university is very good for me as it is not in Central London – the New cross/Brockley area seems very student friendly.

After I graduate I want to continue my studies and pursue my PhD in Visual Anthropology, and continue to make documentary films."
