World-class reputation

As part of the University of London for over 100 years, we have a rich academic heritage, but we’re constantly questioning, challenging and building on what we know.

Rated a five stars institution for areas including teaching, employability, and internationalisation (QS Stars/QS Intelligence Unit 2020), we also have several subject areas in the world’s elite according to the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2020 and were voted as one of the top political universities in the UK by students (Which? University 2019).

Innovative and exciting

Expect to be challenged. At Goldsmiths you’ll change how you think and be inspired to develop fresh ideas and new approaches to your studies.

We champion degrees that 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

Based in vibrant South-East London, our friendly single-site campus is the perfect base to explore all that London has to offer.

Student life and events, societies and sports teams mean that whatever you're into, you're bound to find your place in our welcoming academic community.

"I came to visit the campus before I looked around and immediately it was amazing. It had this friendly vibe, it was in the middle of London but it somehow felt quite like its own little place in a really lovely way that I haven’t experienced with any other kind of London university."

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. 9 out of 10 of our students go into work or further study when they graduate (DLHE 2016-17). 

Looking back, studying at Goldsmiths has been one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. It completely changed the way I think, perceive, analyse and feel the world around me.
