At Goldsmiths my department had a great faculty and my course convener was extremely helpful. Goldsmiths has an incredible library and a great learning space. My overall experience has been wonderful but cut short due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.
I didn’t receive the help necessary & lectures weren’t informative enough
My experience at Birkbeck have been great. I have enjoyed my learning experience as well as the life in the university and outside. It has enhanced my academic knowledge whilst providing a broad exposure.
