Carrie's study experience at Goldsmiths
Studying at Goldsmiths has been such an important step in my vocational and educational formation. While refining my research and writing skills, I am also forming relationships with trailblazers in the fields of Creative Writing and Education. Students and instructors on this course are driven, caring, and passionate, and it is inspiring and energising to learn alongside them. I have made such wonderful friends through this programme, and I have felt greatly supported by both the Education Studies and English and Creative Writing Departments along the way!
Support coming to university
Transitioning to university in general can be difficult, but there are so many kind staff members at Goldsmiths eager to welcome you with open arms. Try your best to reach out to people and be overly communicative with your struggles - there are lots of people willing to lend an ear or help you puzzle through something!
Studying in London as an international student
Being an international student at Goldsmiths has been a wonderful experience, especially as a writer. There are so many literary organizations, exhibitions, and landmarks to explore - London truly feels like a treasure trove of artistic and creative power.
Enjoying the local area
New Cross has so many incredible off-the-beaten-path spots to explore. It’s far enough from Central London that you’re able to explore away from the bustle of tourists, while still getting a rich experience of London life. With so many creative arts students and professors floating about in the area, you’re constantly surrounded by deep thinkers, artists, performers, and musicians, which fills the area with such a unique energy and breadth of opportunities.
