Study at Goldsmiths College
University of London
Goldsmiths College shines like a beacon of creativity and life. Enormously popular with students due to the eclectic and sometimes alternative character of the student body, Goldsmiths is truly a hub for students who want to be encouraged to think out of the box. Popular subjects are fine arts and textiles, art history, drama and theater arts, sociology and communications. Faculty members take advantage of the city of London by incorporating its many resources within their class curricula. Students in the Drama and Theater Arts department, for example, will find themselves visiting a number of sites that relate to their course work. Goldsmiths' environment is energetic- a college that allows self-expression to flourish, yet hones your creative and critical thinking.
A distinctive constituent college of the University of London, Goldsmiths' truly local urban setting is not the fashionably-thronged tourist mecca of the more familiar West End. As a result, you will have the chance to see the everyday London not usually visited by out-of-towners, making for a genuinely cross-cultural experience in the UK's most cosmopolitan city.
