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.
