108.gif The atmosphere of the anthropology department is friendly and relaxed, and interdisciplinary interaction has helped me to achieve a broader understanding of the field of anthropology in general. The college is a particularly stimulating centre for study, since it reflects the diverse and multicultural nature of London.

The teaching and support I have received at Goldsmiths have greatly improved my self-confidence and I feel my time here will leave me with lasting benefits for the future, in terms of both intellectual and personal growth.
