Internationally renowned for our creative and innovative approach to teaching and research, at Goldsmiths we offer undergraduate, postgraduate, teacher training and return-to-study opportunities in subjects covering the arts, social sciences, humanities and computing.
We're in the world's top 100, and the UK's top 20, universities for the arts and humanities, and are ranked ninth in the UK for world-leading 4* research (Research Assessment Exercise 2008). Our academic excellence is illustrated in our membership of the 1994 Group, which brings together a select number of 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 a number of 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. They include Antony Gormley, Mary Quant, Damien Hirst, James Blake, Sam Taylor-Wood, Graham Coxon and Malcolm McLaren.
We've a strong tradition in working with the local community to broaden access to higher education and lifelong learning, and our Department of Professional and Community Education (PACE) 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.
