Goldsmiths, University of London
Supporting students, parents and teachers with post-18 decisions and advocating the value of degrees in the arts, humanities, social sciences, education, cultural studies, computing and business.
We work with teachers to engage Year 12, Year 13 and mature students in subjects through master classes, practice-based workshops, multi-disciplinary conferences, online lectures, writing competitions (English, anthropology, journalism), degree shows, summer schools and the Goldsmiths Progression Scheme. Speakers and workshop leaders can be Goldsmiths academics, alumni, current students, or members of the Student Recruitment and Widening Participation team.
We also provide a range of resources and interactive sessions on IAG topics such as: choosing universities, subjects and courses; student finance; applying to university, personal statements, portfolio preparation; moving to London; and student life. This summer we were delighted to launch the Guide to Going to University which provides step-by-step advice about applying to university through a series of bite-size (15 minute) webinars.
Our study skills sessions are suitable both for students taking the EPQ and Year 13 students who want to tune up their research skills in preparation for the transition to university study.
Meanwhile, across campus, the Department of Educational Studies and the Goldsmiths' Teachers Centre manage the CPD modules, postgraduate courses, and research degrees that are available for teachers and education leaders.
