    Organised

    My second master’s was very in-depth in each section of the course and each module. The lecturers took time to encourage and support the students even though the difficulties of COVID-19 and online learning. Support never dropped.

    Ups and Downs of Being at Goldsmiths

    Doing a Masters at Goldsmiths has its pros and cons depending on the field of study. Since the year is split into terms and modules, and there’s only one core module, the students I share a class with aren’t the same in all of them. This was a wholly different experience for me as an international student from India. I would consider this as a disadvantage because I could not form any meaningful friendships through a classroom set up. Apart from this, my experience at Goldsmiths has been great so far except for the strike action that took place across terms. It didn’t allow me to gain a sound experience of Uni life.
    The silver lining to this experience has to be the people and the atmosphere itself. If you seek them out, Goldsmiths is one of those places where you’ll definitely like-minded people who share similar interests as you. I am lucky to have found people from different countries who not only help me grow as a person but also push me to achieve greater things.
    I am really glad to be a part of this esteemed institution.

    Pretty bad organisation, single political standpoint

    Never seemed to mark anything on time, always on strike, only teach one political perspective with no contrasting opinions even mentioned. Very cliquey, good grades only attainable through pandering.

    Good lecturers- bad management.

    I loved my programme- my lecturers were great and truly inspiring. My course was extremely fascinating and included a range of cultural perspectives. However, my university was poorly run and extremely exploitative of both lecturers and campus staff.

    A really good experience so far

    The experience was going really good for me as an international student. But then the covid 19 situation began so based on the interaction with the university so far, I’d say I’m satisfied with it and will definitely recommend it to others as well!

    Good but could be better

    Goldsmiths is one of the best creative and independent thinking universities in the world. This is a place that makes you think out of the box as a part of the curriculum. Diversity is appreciated and encouraged. Tutors encourage you to go for independent research.

    The library is amazing and is a home to many. The sense of freedom that one gets here makes this place great.

    However the teaching staff have not been treated well by the University Management. This lead to two strikes which shut the college by around 8 weeks. This was upsetting. I wish the management understood the need for better employment conditions for the teaching staff.

    An incredibly caring and compelling university.

    What struck me the most about this university, to begin with, was its welcoming and heart-warming atmosphere. As you walk around the halls, you begin to feel more as if you are part of a family rather than an institution. Both staff and students are more than eager to help newcomers and their caring attitude was what instantaneously reassured about choosing this university. The close sense of community and care is also partly heightened by the university’s size, being slightly smaller compared to other universities in London.

    Goldsmiths also offers a wide range of facilities such as a gym, a cinema, Cafés, and an extensive library covering all the materials needed for one to succeed. The professors are all very experienced and almost always available to ask for help outside lectures and seminars, during their office hours. I am only in my first year, but I feel like I already have experienced enough to be confidently able to recommend Goldsmiths to anyone that is looking for an enthusiastic and insightful university experience.

    Not your average University

    The most liberal and groundbreaking university in London and the entire UK. It encourages you to become a critical deep thinker, not a practitioner. It changes you the way that you see the world around you. Super friendly staff and professors. Everything is easy and possible there.

    Chill and comfortable environment to learn and be inspired.

    Simple commute to the University. The University has modern facilities and well-thought out building design. Really great and comfortable library, most students are willing to stay and work overnight.

    Inspirational list of alumni. Inspirational peers and other students, the best of London’s art & humanities students. Supportive alumni, careers service , extracurricular events and programs. Diverse students, you’re bound to learn more about the Chinese and Asian culture for example.

    Very Respectable Institution, with a strong sense of history mixed with modern architecture.

    You can feel the history of Goldsmiths University all around the halls. As part of the University of London universities, it has a strong and good reputation. The campus has very subtle signs of tradition, but this campus also has state of the art architecture and design. This university seems to be setting the trends when it comes to London Universities. I loved the size and use of space in the library. I loved how the university took pride in all details even in things like leaflets and flyers. The style and diversity of my fellow students was super encouraging and inspiring, as many were from the arts.

    So much great recreational things to do: yoga, mental health classes, visit a Chaplain/Priest. The mental health and student advisors were excellent. The classes for essay and study improvement – even better. Course leaders were so invested and cared about my wellbeing. The course leader would arrange meetings with me via Skype and in her office. She would write recommendations for me. Extremely helpful! Also, A bank right inside of the university, so I always would beat the queue.

    A great student life, so much options on what to do and where to go in South East London (Greenwich).

    Some parts of the university have a regal feel. Some days you will walk through the halls and see a massive orchestra rehearsing.

    I came to the university not sure what to expect from my experience, but it was great. I felt independent, but very comfortable.

    The best of the best in arts and culture attended this University, such as artist Damien Hirst and director Steve Mcqueen (12 years a Slave). An alumni, the creator of Glastonbury Festival, was honoured on the same day I graduated! Amazing!
