GPS activities

We have a range of exciting activities and events throughout the year to encourage you to explore university life, as well as supporting you through your current studies.

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, we have made the decision to pause Goldsmiths Pathways Scheme for this year. We appreciate your interest and hope we will be able to bring it back soon.

Explore subject strands

Explore subject strands are the core of GPS. When you apply to the scheme you'll have the opportunity to choose the one that best suits your interests. Whichever strand you choose, you'll have workshops and trips that'll ignite your passion for and deepen your knowledge of your subject.

You can choose a subject that you’re currently studying or get an introduction to a subject that you've never had the opportunity to study before.

If you’re not sure on any of the strands, you can choose ‘Explore Choice’ which gives you the chance to pick a different strand for each activity.

In each Explore strand, you will attend activities relevant to the subject area and learn about what future pathways and careers are available. You’ll also have an opportunity to attend workshops that focus on building skills, including exam and study techniques and a Growth Mindset workshop. 

You’ll also be invited on a trip to central London to show how your subject can fit in with real-life careers and society. Previous trips have included the Royal Courts of Justice, Houses of Parliament, and the Design Museum.

Explore strands will be taking place in April and will run online.

Welcome event

The welcome event will take place in March 2022 and is your chance to meet other GPS students and discover more about the exciting opportunities that GPS can offer you. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet some of our current students that will be working with you on the scheme. This is planning on taking place in person on our Goldsmiths campus.

Additional activities

There are lots more activities that you can get involved with during GPS including Degree Shows Days, UCAS Exhibitions, Open Days, and guest lectures. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet and talk to current students about what university is like. We’ll keep you up to date with everything that’s going on in the GPS newsletter so you’ll never miss an opportunity to get involved.
