The thing Ilike the most at Goldsmiths is the quite radical leftwing approaches they have in study. the other thing I really like is that the University is very helpful when it comes to sort visas out and solving money related issues. If they can do anything for you, i'm sure they will do it. They are quite flexible for both visa and fees, at least in my case. A good example of bureaucracy in favour of the students. show less

Goldsmiths is the best if you are into fine Arts, computational arts, Music, Sociology and humanistic related fields. The strength of students at this school is tong, open-minded, creative and always on top of the social issues. In terms of the European Philosophies, Goldsmiths offers an outstanding level of research and promote a strong culture of critical thinking. It is therefore a fundamental ground for people that study theory and practice here. show less
