134.gif 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 knew I wanted to pursue a TV Journalism course so I started looking for universities and I came across Goldsmiths and applied. Since it had a reputed Media and Communications background I knew I wanted to get in here.

Before coming to Goldsmiths I was working for two years as a Freelance Host and in Creative operations for a Video Production Company. The course is absolutely great, I have learned so much in so little time and tutors are so helpful. After graduation I'm planning to apply for jobs in the UK, so working hard to find valuable work experience through internships."
