Goldsmiths is internationally known for creativity and innovation - a reputation backed up by the highest academic standards, and over a century's membership of the University of London. Located in New Cross, South East London, the College offers study opportunities in the arts and humanities, social sciences, computing, and entrepreneurial business and management. With alumni including Antony Gormley, Damien Hirst, Mary Quant, Bridget Riley and Steve McQueen, Goldsmiths brings creative and unconventional approaches to the subjects offered.

The College is friendly and vibrant, and proud of the diverse student population which adds to this welcoming atmosphere - nearly 20% of students come from countries outside the UK. Goldsmiths is a serious academic force, reflected in the most recent UK Research Excellence Framework (2014) which judged that nearly three quarters of the research carried out by academics at Goldsmiths is rated as ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’.
