I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Goldsmiths and the BSc Economics programme. I loved that the curriculum was pluralist and holistic, and didn't solely focus upon mainstream economics. This definitely differentiates itself from other economics programmes and gives it a competitive edge.
This approach to teaching and the curriculum, in general, has taught me to consider the perspective and experiences of all individuals when forming opinions and arriving at conclusions.
I am currently training to be a chartered accountant with the ICAEW, after completing further study at the University of Cambridge. Both of which would never have been achievable without Goldsmiths, and the opportunities they provided me.
University can be an incredible tool and investment that will propel your trajectory in life, regardless of your specialism. However, the magnitude of your success, amongst other factors, is proportionate to how much effort and time you invest into your experience. Make the most of university and the experience it offers, both inside and outside the classroom.
One of my favourite parts of studying at Goldsmiths was the college green, especially in the summer. It was a lovely place to meet with friends to socialise and relax, and get in that extra last-minute revision for an exam.
Also, the diversity of the cuisine that New Cross and South East London in general offered was amazing.
