A unique place to work. An academic centre of creative expression.
Goldsmiths University prides itself on fuelling a creative community, which also promotes academic excellence. New ideas and thinking for oneself is encouraged, and research projects span across the arts, cultural studies, and social sciences. Goldsmiths host some amazing lecturers and students who go on to do great things. An interdisciplinary approach has helped students to cross academic boundaries, in order to enhance their comparative understanding of humanities.
Academically, Goldsmiths is of a very high standard, particularly in the areas of media, politics, and sociology. The Philosophy Centre offers advanced seminars to the public, and the main building hosts a cinema and bar open to the public. Goldsmiths have celebrated "diversity and inclusion" for many years, but this achievement has been undermined in recent years, due to some very bad press concerning discrimination. The senior management are incredibly slow to respond to such issues. Indeed, there appears to be a massive disconnect between senior management and the academic staff. However, there is a real opportunity to reconnect with their "original values" when they were Goldsmiths College, before the commercialisation of UK Higher Education.
