Goldsmiths, University of London


Goldsmiths is in New Cross, South East London. Vibrant, distinctive and with great transport connections to Central London, it is comparable to the Heartlands of Singapore and an ideal base for experiencing and enjoying the London alternative. Our teaching and administration, and most of our residential accommodation, are located on a single campus. It includes the RIBA award-winning Rutherford Building and the prestigious Ben Pimlott Building.

School Life

All about the freedom to experiment, to think differently, to be an individual – Goldsmiths offers a transformative experience, generating knowledge and stimulating self-discovery through creative, radical and intellectually rigorous thinking and practice. We work with a network of renowned professors, galleries and museums both in London and internationally to create an inspiring and dynamic place in which to study and develop an independent practice. Many graduates of Goldsmiths are the most recognised names working in their fields today.


Our students have a vast variety of different backgrounds and reasons for studying, creating a diverse student population. Our list of former students includes names like Antony Gormley, Julian Clary, Damien Hirst, Mary Quant, Bridget Riley, Sam Taylor-Wood, Graham Coxon, Malcolm McLaren – leaders and innovators in their chosen fields.
