I chose Goldsmiths as I really wanted to live in London and had heard that Goldsmiths is one of the top places to study social work. As soon as I visited I knew I wanted to study here, lots going on, great staff working here and generally the feeling that you can be involved in lots of stuff if you choose to.
The course uses varying teaching methods including group work. This can be very challenging but is also rewarding and gives a chance to use your own experience and knowledge.
I have made some amazing friends since starting the course and this is due in part to a permeating culture at Goldsmiths: an open-minded, liberal, social conscience kind of a place where no hair style is too bizarre!
I learned about Goldsmiths in a daft BBC documentary (Goldsmiths: But is it Art?) but that hasn't a bit to do with why I came here! I chose to study Social Work at Goldsmiths because it is inclusive and community-facing, and felt like the right place to form my identity as a social worker. I have been supported by principled staff that value head and heart equally, and who work for the collective good of teachers and researchers, students and the individuals we support as social workers. When I graduate I hope to keep learning from and working with all sorts of people, which is a privilege that Goldsmiths has taught me to appreciate.
