Faye's time at Goldsmiths

My favourite part about university and studying my degree was learning! I know it sounds silly, but I love being a student and learning new things. I always want to expand my knowledge. I learnt so much from both lecturers and students at Goldsmiths. Everybody is so unique and interests are so different. The lecturers especially are very knowledgeable and have a great way of sharing that with you. What I found surprising was how involved the students are in the lectures and how we lead the conversation. There is a lot of great discussions that happen and the lecturers really welcome all ideas. Studying at Goldsmiths made me believe that anything is possible, I thought coming to Goldsmiths I would be way out of my league but everyone has made me feel so welcome.

Advice for future students

If I can do it, so can you! I had no A-levels, I went to a stage school at the age of 16 and I hadn't written anything for 10 years before I applied to go to university. I ended up getting a first in my undergraduate degree and now I'm studying for a masters at Goldsmiths, one of the best universities in the country, with a scholarship. Dreams do come true and you can do anything you put your mind to.

It's not that long, when you hear the course is 2 or 3 years it immediately sounds like such a long time. But it isn't. The years go so quick. You are only on campus 2 - 3 days a week. You have plenty of time to work, socialise and do other things as well as study.
