Goldsmiths, University of London

Goldsmiths has a distinct kind of energy. It’s one that stimulates. And it’s one that stirs.

Goldsmiths is a small campus community with a global reach, bringing learning to life through powerful conversations and personal connections. Proud to nurture the best and the brightest minds, Goldsmiths is looking at the world through its own lens.

Championing research-rich degrees that provoke thought, stretch the imagination and tap into tomorrow’s world, Goldsmiths students and staff are asking the questions that matter now in subjects as diverse as the arts and humanities, social sciences, cultural studies, computing, and entrepreneurial business and management. It’s a community defined by its people: innovative in spirit, analytical in approach and open to all.
