What our students say
"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." – Charlotte, BA Anthropology
"Being in a space where art can be studied alongside Economics was a factor that I found interesting as I felt it stimulated different parts of my brain." – Idowu A Isaac Ojo, BA Economics
"Studying at Goldsmiths was a game changer, in a professional and a personal context. Being part of such an international environment and on a course with a bunch of incredible individuals has changed my entire way of thinking." – Timm, MA Political Communications
"The atmosphere ... is very lively and collaborative, I feel surrounded by people who are passionate about their field of interest and also at the same time extremely helpful and approachable." – Ankita, MA Computational Arts
