Located in New Cross, South East London, the College has over 8,000 students taking part in undergraduate, postgraduate and return-to-study opportunities in the arts, social sciences, humanities and computing. With alumni including Antony Gormley, Julian Clary, Damien Hirst, Mary Quant, Bridget Riley, Graham Coxon and Malcolm McLaren, Goldsmiths brings creative and unconventional approaches to the subjects offered.
