Before I came to Goldsmiths, I was a student in India and was completing my high school degree. While I was still in high school I started doing a lot of research for which university to apply for, and then I had a feeling that Goldsmiths was the one for me.
What really excited me to join Goldsmiths was the BA Design programme. This course is helping me explore different areas of design, and I really like how everything is integrated, and it’s not just the basic, standard design course. It has really helped me broaden my horizons and think outside the box. I am learning things that I never imagined myself doing, like merging coding with design – this really fascinates me. The technical studies and the project briefs are really engaging and interesting. I really love the tutors and how friendly and helpful they are. It feels more like a friendly relationship than a student professor relationship.
The atmosphere in and around the college is very warm. There is so much diversity everywhere, it’s astounding. All the students are so warm, they all make everyone feel included, especially being an international student. Goldsmiths feels like home. Within a month I started feeling comfortable and well adjusted in London. After graduating I am hoping to go back to India and do great changes using the knowledge I gained from Goldsmiths. I am so glad that I chose to come to Goldsmiths for my education.
