Overview

Renowned for our creative and innovative approach to teaching and research, Goldsmiths offers study in the arts and humanities, social sciences, cultural studies, computing, and entrepreneurial business and management. We're in the world's top 100 universities for the arts and humanities (QS Rankings 2012), have been recognised as one of the UK's top creative universities by students (Which University 2012), and are ranked ninth in the UK for world-leading 4* research (RAE 2008). Our academic excellence is illustrated in our membership of the 1994 Group, which brings together student-focused, research-focused universities. We have been part of the University of London for over 100 years. Our unique academic approach comes from the interaction of 15 academic departments, together with smaller centres and units. Our distinctive attitude to learning encourages students to explore ideas, challenge boundaries, investigate fresh ways of thinking, and stretch their minds intellectually and creatively. Many of our former students have become leaders and innovators in their chosen fields. We`ve a strong tradition in working with the local community to broaden access to higher education and lifelong learning, and our Department of Social, Therapeutic and Community Studies continues this commitment. Goldsmiths is located in New Cross, South East London. Vibrant, urban and with great transport connections to Central London, it`s an ideal base for experiencing and enjoying the capital.
