I haven't finished studying at Goldsmiths yet, but so far I am enjoying the resources and events available to writers, and the big artist community.
I would advise future students to learn good time management and take advantage of the opportunities presented to you. Explore the neighbourhood and get involved in events.
South East London is really chill compared to the rest of the city, which is great. The range of cuisines available in New Cross is also enjoyable.
