The program details

This program is geared for motivated, creative thinkers, who are eager to experience a new culture. At Goldsmiths, known for its interdisciplinary approach, CIEE students focus their studies in one of 15 academic departments.

Founded in 1891, Goldsmiths joined the University of London in 1904, and is world-recognized for creativity and innovation. The urban campus is in New Cross, South East London, a lively, diverse, working class neighborhood with a booming music and arts scene. Goldsmiths is large enough to offer a variety of facilities, yet small enough to give personalized attention and create a strong sense of community.

Courses are taught by members of the Goldsmiths faculty.

Academics

Academics

  • CLASS FORM

    Students take Goldsmiths classes with British students as well as other CIEE and international students.

  • GRADING

    Assessment is based on overall performance, including coursework, essays, exams, and performance in seminars.

  • ACADEMIC CULTURE

    Students notice striking differences between education systems. The British model is less structured and requires students take more responsibility and initiative. Students will notice less class time and more independent work. The CIEE staff supports students as they adapt to this new style. Professors teach with lectures, group seminars, tutorials, workshops, studios, and laboratory work, depending on the subject. Key concepts and topics are usually introduced in lectures, and might be discussed in smaller groups. Students have opportunities to collaborate, and a tutorial system provides support. Goldsmiths’ fall term runs from September to December; spring term runs from January to June.
