"I knew about Goldsmiths as I was previously studying art and design related degree in London and Goldsmiths is renowned for its Fine Art course and alumni. My previous course was called Illustration and Visual Media which I completed from London College of Communication, UAL, and I specialised in experimental moving image. What made me select the course at Goldsmiths was its unique structure and simply the course itself is something I did not find at other UK universities, the options available for Scholarships to international students also played a major role in me deciding to apply to Goldsmiths. The atmosphere on the course is very lively and collaborative, I feel surrounded by people who are passionate about their field of interest and also at the same time extremely helpful and approachable. I am finding the course very intensely structured to maximise your skills in the span of one year which is unlike other art courses and I feel gives you more value for money.
I have lived in London for the past 5 years but nevertheless there are always so many interesting exhibitions and events going on in the capital that one is seldom bored. London (even Goldsmiths) is particularly good for a niche like computational arts as there are many talks and lectures on my topics of interest which are often not found in many cities. Once I graduate I plan to move my career forward as a creative technologist and artist, either in London or in India and form interesting collaborations to explore how technology can impact different cultures and spirituality."
