World-class reputation

As part of the University of London for over 115 years, we have a rich academic heritage, but we’re constantly questioning, challenging and building on what we know.

Nearly three-quarters of the research carried out by academics at Goldsmiths was rated as ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ in the last Research Excellence Framework (2014). We are top 10 in the UK for our research intensity (The Complete University Guide League Tables 2021).

Our mix of students, who come to study with us from around 140 countries, gives us five stars for internationalisation (QS World University Rankings, 2020).

Innovative and exciting

Expect to be challenged. At Goldsmiths you’ll be inspired to develop fresh ideas and new approaches to your discipline through the teaching of renowned academics and your own research.

Our postgraduate programmes champion perspectives that push the boundaries, provoke thought and stretch the imagination. That’s why so many of our former students are leading the way in reshaping the sociocultural landscape on a global scale.

Inspiring location

London is the best city in the world in which to be a student (QS Best Student Cities 2019). We are based in New Cross, in South-East London. The area has a thriving music and arts scene, buzzing cafes, and a genuinely diverse and eclectic population. At just 10 minutes from central London by train, it is the perfect base from which to explore the intellectual, cultural and career opportunities that the city has to offer. 

Our Graduate School community, exciting events programme and student life mean that whatever your interests, you're bound to find your place in our welcoming academic community.

Employability

Our dedicated careers service, placement opportunities and contemporary courses mean you’ll graduate with the skills and knowledge to succeed in your future career.
