“Is Goldsmiths a Goldmine?”

published 15/09/2007

UoL

Social life if not into Indie

I studies at Goldsmiths in 05/06 academic year and I was studying Media and Sociology. My time here was one of many up and downs. After my first year I decided not to go back and chose to study elsewhere, but don't let that put you off, Goldsmiths may not have been for me but that does not mean...

The Course: I was really disappointed with the course that I was doing here. They had promised to teach us so many things at the beginning of the year, which they never did. Despite the continuous complaints, nothing was ever done and we were just told that we had to teach ourselves all the...

Arty, lively atmosphere

Located in dodgy New Cross

If you fancy hanging out in a pretty creative, arty environment in a highly regarded London college south of the River Thames, then Goldsmiths’ is the place for you.

Goldsmiths is one of those colleges where everyone seems to be having a great time all the time, however this wears thin after a while. I found Goldsmiths to be under-resourced and at times the staff just didn't seem to care about the welfare of the students. Of all the colleges currently...

Goldsmith University is a very poor university for the following reasons: 1. lack of facilities: classes were cancelled on many occasions due to lack of classrooms. When we were lucky enough to have a class room the facilities were horrible cramped and not adequate heating. Some of our lectures...

in 5 months I learn a lot more on my own with my theory books than I have learned on this course! First of all, the description of this course on their website does not give an accurate idea of what this course is about! I thought I was going to a course where I could learn from music by...

Poor teaching! Big drug culture at the university! It has a massive drop out rate! New Cross is a horrible area and the campus is right bang in the middle of it! Lectures cancelled regularly. Tutors are unhelpful and the union is just foul! Do not go to university here if you want to take your studies seriously!
