Support at Goldsmiths

You will still be able to access all the support services available at Goldsmiths.

The Wellbeing team can provide support if you're having difficulties with your mental health or wellbeing while abroad. They can be contacted on wellbeing (@gold.ac.uk).

The Disability Service can provide advice and guidance on how to manage your disability while abroad, and can advise on adjustments that may be needed. They can be contacted on disability (@gold.ac.uk).

The Global Opportunities Team are on hand to answer any queries or concerns you may have during your time away. They can advise on anything from changing your Learning Agreement to getting in touch with your Erasmus Advisor.

If you need additional support please see our wellbeing pages.

Support locally

It's important to familiarise yourself with the services available at your host university, or within your host organisation.

Find out about the support they have on offer, such as wellbeing and advice teams, and ensure you know the contact details of your Erasmus Advisor.

If you're studying abroad it's a good idea to get involved with the Students' Union. This is a great way to make friends and find out about support networks.

It's often easier to get support from the country you're in, particularly if you need adjustments made.

If you're unsure of where to go or who to talk to within your host university or organisation, then the Global Opportunities team here at Goldsmiths can point you in the right.

Getting involved locally

To help settle into your new environment it is also important to get involved in local life. You might want to join a club or society or take part in a language exchange. Look out for local meet up groups or check whether there is an Erasmus Student Network near you: esn.org
