About Goldsmiths, University of London

For more than 200 years, generations of students have received an education here on the site of Goldsmiths. In 1792 the Counter Hill Academy opened its doors in New Cross, in a house built by Deptford distiller, William Goodhew. The Royal Naval School then bought the site, building what is now their Richard Hoggart Building in 1843.The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths acquired the school and reopened it in 1891 as The Goldsmiths’ Company’s Technical and Recreative Institute. With the dawn of the twentieth century, the Company handed over the Institute to the University of London. It was re-christened Goldsmiths College and the modern era of Goldsmiths had begun.

Today they actively encourage close links between their departments so students can learn in a fertile interdisciplinary atmosphere. This allows them to develop new programmes and new research opportunities that lead the way in contemporary academic thinking. Creativity has always been the hallmark of Goldsmiths. Academic excellence and imaginative course content combine to make a place where creative minds can thrive and ideas are allowed to grow.

Goldsmiths has a strong reputation based on their influential research and creative practice, much of it on themes of cross‐cultural relevance and much of it recognised externally as world‐leading and of international excellence. Their academic community of staff, students and visiting researchers are diverse in geographical origin and are attracted here because of this reputation, some are drawn specifically by their distinctive emphases on exploration of cultural issues in, and across, particular societies or regions of the world.

Their courses and research activities span the arts, humanities, social sciences, cultural studies, computing, business and management across 20 academic departments. Their academics cooperate across disciplines to create exciting new courses and develop novel approaches to research issues. Their interdisciplinary ethos has helped them to become a national leader in many subject areas.
