Goldsmiths, University of London, offers undergraduate and postgraduate degree, and specialises in the Arts, humanities, social sciences, psychology, management and computing.
We have a small but exciting campus, so that all lecturers and events are held in one place. This creates a close-knit community that includes people from every corner of the world, which makes for a diverse learning experience (and plenty of stimulating conversation). Our campus is in New Cross, South East London, which is just minutes from the heart of this great global city, home to major cultural landmarks including the National Theatre and Tate Modern.
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.
The University is based on a single-site campus within London’s vibrant New Cross, just minutes from the heart of this great global city, home to major cultural landmarks including the National Theatre and Tate Modern. New Cross is a vibrant area in South East London that's situated just 10 minutes by train from the centre of the city. Described by The New York Times as a hub of creative talent, the area has a thriving music and arts scene, fantastic restaurants, buzzing cafes, and a genuinely diverse and eclectic population. What's more, it was recently voted the best place in South East London for renting.
