Goldsmiths was the perfect place to broaden my horizons, not only academically but also as a person.
Goldsmiths was the perfect place to broaden my horizons, not only academically but also as a person. I enjoyed the lectures, which were always interesting and given by knowledgeable and encouraging and entertaining teachers (I'll always remember the one who bought Madeleines as we were discussing Proust's Swann's Way). I got to meet some people who made the journey easier and more fun.
Luis' favourite parts of studying in London
Being able to walk from Goldsmiths to the north of London, such a beautiful walk. When studying at Goldsmiths I also started going to CrossFit to The Yard in Peckham and Arc in Borough as it was close enough to go after (or before) uni. Now I couldn't live without going every week!
Life after graduating
After finishing my MA in Translation, I took up French and I am now finalising a PhD proposal. I've been also looking for jobs, and although I haven't found anything in publishing or journalism (what I'd really like to do), I will soon be interviewed for a position as a Spanish Teacher in a school.
Advice for future students
When studying at Goldsmiths, prioritise active participation, engage with professors, and manage your time wisely. Take advantage of London's vibrant environment, explore the city, and build a supportive network. Balance your lifestyle, seek internships, and plan for your future career, making the most of this enriching experience.
