"Goldsmiths is oozing with passion, diversity, independence and freedom. Not only is the university buzzing with activity from societies, sports, and socials in the Students' Union, but it is placed in the heart of providing unique and inspiring experiences and opportunities. The games of football and sunbathers out on the university green, music blasting from the gym’s studio, and the many events, fundraisers and campaigns constantly running, not one day at Goldsmiths can be boring or keep a smile from your face.
I am now completing my third year in Psychology with relief that I picked Goldsmiths over other universities; the course is stimulating and demanding, vibrant and thought-provoking. The teaching staff are some of the world’s top and leading researchers, enlightening students with up-to-date and innovative discoveries, while there’s never a closed door to questions and fully-pledged support. There are many course options allowing for individual development of interests in Psychology; I choose to specialise into cognitive music neuroscience research.
Studying Psychology at Goldsmiths challenges your thoughts, knowledge and understanding of the people and world around you; it’s stimulating, inspiring and teaches both academic and personal skills which will stay with me forever."
