About Goldsmiths University of London

The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths set up its Technical and Recreative Institute in 1891 to provide educational opportunities for the people of New Cross.

The University of London acquired the new Institute and re-established it as Goldsmiths College in 1904.

Since 1989, Goldsmiths has been a full College of the University with its own distinctive role as an independent university institution, at the same time committed to its membership of one of the world’s great academic federations. 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 and humanities, social sciences, cultural studies, computing, and entrepreneurial business and management.

Goldsmiths: a close-knit community, a rich academic heritage, a creative powerhouse, a thought-provoking place. Our academic departments, centres and institutes offer a range of study options within the arts and humanities, social sciences, cultural studies, computing, and entrepreneurial business and management.

Why Goldsmiths? Student satisfaction at Goldsmiths is at an all-time high (2013 National Student Survey) You’ll be taught by and will debate with the best in the field: our academics are the people who write the books that appear on reading lists across the country.
