I like Goldsmiths, because here you can reinvent yourself. The course leaders encourage you to think broadly in different perspectives. The campus is quite multinational, so you can experience different cultures when communicating with different schoolmates. The campus atmosphere is quite arty and funky. You can even experiment on your dressing style every day to test your creative ideas. In a word, this lively environment at Goldsmiths really gives you a feeling that you yourself are unique and you can make a difference to the community, to the nation and even to the world.
"I am a Peruvian journalist with twelve years of experience in both broadcast and print news. Currently, I am studying the MA Filmmaking: Screen Documentary.
Searching for a masters programme was a long and difficult process. However, I eventually chose to study at Goldsmiths because the course was the most closely aligned with my interests. I also chose to study here because of its academic prestige and the practical nature of the course. I am learning to make documentaries as I make them! I am constantly encouraged to develop my voice and style to tell the stories that move me.
By studying a masters degree in documentary filmmaking, I will be able to produce and direct documentaries that do not appear only in festivals, but that can reach a much broader audience."
