My experience in the Goldsmiths University is positive overall. Only part to improve more is the organization. Student Union is amazing, and there is a nice variety of groups to join.

This university has a good reputation, and I don’t know what for. The admin has been bad from the start of my course, not knowing I was starting until a week before the start date. I received multiple emails about fees not being paid AFTER I had arranged the fee payments termly and they only changed this after I had sent 4 angry worded emails. Most of the tutors I encountered were incredible, passionate about their subject and very good at providing well executed classes, some however, lacked organisation wit one course being completely timetabled over a Facebook group. As far as the environment, the university is situated in a fairly nice place, lots of links to other places but most of the students are completely up themselves. It was a case of not fitting in that made this uni feel as though it was prestigious and above anyone who came from a working class background.

The course was extremely immersive, we had projects every day and our teachers were attentive. The course taught me a variety of skills that has made me adaptable within the creative industry. It also taught me a design process that I have used throughout my career which has help me become confident and creative with my work.

The course at Goldsmiths is very good, but going into the following years, you need to be prepared for the amount of work you are expected to do. It can be vwry stressful, especially during exam season, so preparation is extremely important during the summer holidays.

BA (Hons) History and History of Ideas
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

I quite enjoyed the extensive topics and the approaches, using visual and material culture including analysing film, dress, literature early modern and medieval illustrations to understand socio-political history. It is a refreshing perspective, and topics such as dress of Victorian poor, protests were very interesting topics. I feared back when I was applying to Universities during A-levels that I would learn generic modern, early modern history in traditional way until I found this course. Ideally a few years back i wanted to enter East Anglia for its quality of research.

Course module review - Global Development And Underdevelopment, 22/05/2016

Global Development And Underdevelopment
5.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
5.0 / 1 review

This sociology course outlines the structures and origins of the economic systems that make up our interconnected world. It gives an excellent base of knowledge for understanding economics on a social level, and understanding the language used to talk about the current issues we are involved in currently. Often economics is seen as something too complex to tackle, Brian Alleyne masterfully explains the underpinnings of these systems and makes them much more accessible to the average person. The readings are incredibly well chosen and informative.

The module is taught through one hour lectures combined with one hour seminars over an eleven week schedule. It is assessed through a 3000 word essay. The aims of the module include critical reflection on the relationship between art and anthropology. Through ethnographic case studies it considers key anthropological approaches to art history and themes.

Community Needs And Services
5.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review

Community Needs and Services is a great module, it is the first time you get to really engage with service users and go out and actually do some real research. My researched food banks and I found it really opened my eyes to the issues people face who access them. A note of caution though, it is easy to get into conflict whist doing group work. People simply don't always agree and sometimes people don't pull their weight. One member of my group simply didn't do her contribution towards a presentation we had to do that day which put the rest of us under a great deal of pressure...
