An incubator for ideas
Creativity has always been the hallmark of Goldsmiths. Academic excellence and imaginative course content combine to make a place where creative minds can thrive and ideas are allowed to grow.
A world leader in new knowledge
Our academics cooperate across disciplines to create exciting new courses and develop novel approaches to research issues. Our interdisciplinary ethos has helped us to become a national leader in many subject areas.
The QS World Rankings place us in the top five UK Universities for Art & Design and Communication & Media Studies. Goldsmiths is also in the UK’s top 25 for the quality of our research, according to the Research Excellence Framework 2014 (based on research quality scores in the Times Higher Education subject rankings).
From Creative and Social Technologies to Anomalistic Psychology our teaching and research staff are combining their specialist knowledge to fashion new insights into 21st-century challenges.
'Whatever discipline you choose, you’ll find your old ideas challenged and your new ideas embraced. Goldsmiths is a place where together we are creating the knowledge of the future.'
A place where your career can grow
At Goldsmiths, we don’t put you in a box. We are a fluid and energetic community where staff and students work in partnership to bring learning to life. You’ll have the opportunity to work in flexible ways and across departments. You’ll collaborate with people from different backgrounds and with different specialities to create solutions that are unique and exciting.
The perfect partner for business and industry
Because many of our tutors are practising professionals in their field, we understand how business and industry works, what it wants and how it constantly changes and evolves. Students have the opportunity to get work experience so they can graduate equipped with the skills and experience they need when they enter the workforce.
We have comprehensive and long-established links with regional, national and international employers who know from experience when they hire a Goldsmiths graduate they’re hiring a graduate of the highest calibre.
A caring community
At Goldsmiths we’re a close-knit community that sees everyone as an individual with their own strengths and needs. Because we’re a single-campus university, you’ll never feel isolated or overlooked.
We have teams dedicated to helping disabled students or offering financial advice. You can count on our trained counsellors to help you cope at stressful times, or turn to our chaplain for confidential support. We’ll give you the space to be yourself but there’ll always be someone to talk to when you have a question or need someone to listen.
Embracing the global citizen
Because we’re just 10 minutes from the centre of London; because we have students from 114 different countries; because many of our courses offer the opportunity to spend time studying abroad, Goldsmiths truly embraces the global citizen.
