Student life

“If I had to name one place in the world where I belong, heart and mind, it is Goldsmiths. The people and professors I've met, together with Goldsmiths' radical soul, have made these three years a transformative experience that is now helping me shape the path for my future.” - Elettra (BA Sociology & Politics)
