The opportunities provided have been evolutionary for my future career as a solicitor.

Diverse and inclusive

Goldsmiths is known for its diverse and inclusive community that fosters creativity, critical thinking, and exploration. I believe that the environment at Goldsmiths is very accepting and allows for personal and professional growth.

A supportive environment

Additionally, Goldsmiths offers a range of support services and resources, including academic advice, mental health counselling, and career development, to help students thrive in their academic and personal pursuits. I am currently in my third year and over the years have truly felt the support from my lecturers and cohort. I believe that Goldsmiths is a place for opportunities and growth.

Opportunities for career success

The environment that the Law Department has created has been extremely inviting, especially after Covid-19. I am thankful that I am undertaking my LLB Law degree at Goldsmiths. The opportunities that the Law Department has provided me with have been evolutionary for my future career as a solicitor. These opportunities include attending a case at the European Court of Human Rights, the Harvard Zero-L course, and many more. More specifically, the learning has been extremely tailored to each student to truly allow for immersion in the course.

Advice for future students

1. Stay organised and manage your time effectively. University life is full of distractions and it is essential to stay organised and maintain a schedule that helps you focus on your studies.

2. Attend lectures, seminars, and tutorials. Attending lectures and seminars can significantly improve your understanding of the subject matter, and tutorials can help you get individualised attention and support.

3. Engage in extracurricular activities. Participating in activities like clubs, societies, sports, and volunteering is a great way to meet new people, develop new skills, and enhance your overall university experience.

The benefits of studying in New Cross

One of the advantages of studying in this area is the diversity of culture and lifestyle. I have experienced various cuisines, music, and art from different backgrounds. The location allows for easy access to other parts of London, making it a great base to explore the rest of the city.
