Design isn’t just about making and doing – it’s a way of understanding and engaging with the world.
Why study Design at Goldsmiths?
- You'll think imaginatively about the possibilities of design, and how it has the potential to change and improve the world around us
- In your second year, you’ll have the chance to do a work placement in a professional setting – students have previously secured placements at Selfridges and Alexander McQueen
- Goldsmiths Design graduates have gone on to work for top London design agencies and major international brands including Dyson, LEGO, Google and Burberry; many have also set up their own design studios
- Studying Design in London brings many advantages – you can access world-renowned galleries and spaces, and get inspired by the rich cultural opportunities the city has to offer
I love that the degree is so broad. I’ve made stickers, films, a mixtape, sculptures, zines… the list is endless. I don’t think I’d have been brave enough to do that anywhere else.
