Be Bold with Gold

Free interactive workshops for year 12’s

Primary page content

Be Bold with Gold is a workshop for year 12s which aims to demystify all things about higher education, enabling them to get university ready.

The 90-minute session can be held at your school or college and will be presented by a Goldsmiths staff member along with current students, giving your pupils a fantastic opportunity to ask any university-related questions in real life. Be Bold with Gold can also be held on campus at Goldsmiths. This can also include a campus tour if required.

Your students will learn about topics including university accommodation, transport and how student finance, scholarships, bursaries and grants work. They'll also get to know about day-to-day life as a student - how many hours of study, seminars and lectures they will undertake, how courses and modules work and of course, the all-important university social life - societies and other fun to be had on and off campus.

Pupils who attended this session have said it greatly increased their knowledge of university.

Here is some feedback we've received:

Thank you for an incredibly interactive, motivating and educational Be Bold with Gold workshop for our sixth form students. I have never seen a university workshop run in such a participatory manner and it will be really memorable for the students as a result. The student ambassadors are a credit to your university and really engaging and knowledgeable in their tour.
