"The decision to resign from my job and pursue a career in social work at Goldsmiths has been one of the best I have made. At the beginning of the course it was very overwhelming because you have a huge amount of new information to process and understand. However, the content of the course is fascinating. I have been taught about interesting theories and concepts. I have learned how to look at things critically and learned how to be reflective in my practice.
The course is exciting because you meet and work with individuals from a diverse range of cultures, backgrounds and experience, all of whom bring individual perspectives and knowledge which enhance your learning.
I would recommend Goldsmiths to anyone wanting to pursue a career in social work. The lecturers are experienced practitioners who are passionate about social work, and their lectures and seminars are always interesting and informative. The Goldsmiths social work course is renowned for group work, so be prepared. Also, get into the habit of reading anything and everything to do with social work, particularly read about anti-oppressive practice and anti-discriminatory practice, as they are at the forefront of social work practice."
