Having been at Goldsmiths and London for more than a month, I have noticed a very diverse and dynamic campus, accommodating people from different backgrounds, and different different. The university hosts a variety of programmes and events on various subjects, a number of which I have enjoyed participating in over the past month. These programmes give an insight into the topics that are being researched and worked on in other departments, and provide an opportunity to further explore counter-relations.
Goldsmiths staff were understanding and helpful, as were staff in the Art Department, who helped with any problems or issues I had.
As a Photography graduate from the University of Tehran, I have never experienced studying in such an internationally engaged institution. I have met many students from all over the world, making the programme a great place to share opinions and ideas while building inter-cultural relationships. I find Goldsmiths a great place for networking, and getting to know now-established and future figures in my field, which brings the possibility of collective working in the future.
I expect Goldsmiths to hold on to these principles, continue improving support for international students, and maintain a diverse campus.
