Met great friends and good tutors but not enough hours. Great facilities and library. Institutional racism is bad though. And not enough helpful people for extra curricular advice

I'm in my third year at the moment and I wanted to write this review a little early because I have a lot of thoughts. Let's start with the positives. The animation module is the best one out of all the practice modules. The tutors are really helpful, as well as the technical advisors. I felt like I learned a lot and the module is very creatively fulfilling. It's my favourite part of the degree. It gets hard but in a good way. This uni might be a good place for creatives. You get to meet (some) likeminded people. Now onto the negatives. (very quickly, I know) Please look up the several Goldsmiths scandals and you'll get the idea of the kind of people who go there. The university sweeps these under the rug and the SU has tried taking down some videos. Goldsmiths is the master of sweeping things under the rug, we'll come back to that), and their hypocritical "safe space" policy. They refuse to talk about anything objectively. By the end of a lecture/seminar at Goldsmiths you kind of feel that the person leading it is pushing you into a direction that they want, trying to convince you of their perspective instead of listening to your opinion and encouraging a discussion (this is true about everything they teach, not just communism). Regardless of your beliefs, this is not how a university should function. They (directly or indirectly) encourage a certain kind of behaviour. The students act in the exact same way because they have a "safe space" to do so. Why is that every time something like this happens it's always at Goldsmiths? The first article has a good quote: "Goldsmiths is the kind of place where you stick out if you don’t stick out. You feel under pressure to be eccentric and unconventional and have the most radical opinions about everything." This is a nice way to say the university encourages students to be extremists.

As the PGCE is predominantly work based, the time spent at uni is limited, but help is always available
