Currently I am a postgraduate student at Goldsmiths. Being an international student at Goldsmiths has been and continues to be one of the best experiences of my life. Goldsmiths’ smaller College population in comparison to other Colleges at the University of London makes it easier to connect with people and develop friendships. Furthermore, my class size has made one-on-one interactions with tutors feasible and has helped a great deal in absorbing the taught material. Moving abroad to begin postgrad studies has not been without its difficulties, but Goldsmiths staff have been very helpful in the transition process. I appreciated the range of social events the International Office planned the first week for international students, and the meeting that was held giving us full detailed information on a range of international student issues. I feel very blessed to be at a College that has a solid academic reputation, respects individuality, and genuinely cares for and looks after its students.
