About Goldsmith University Of London and Scholarship
Goldsmiths, University of London, officially Goldsmiths’ College, is an English constituent research institution of the University of London. The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths established it in 1891 as The Goldsmiths’ Technical and Recreational Institute in New Cross, London. After being purchased by the University of London in 1904, it was renamed Goldsmiths’ College and now specializes in the arts, design, computers, humanities, and social sciences. The largest structure on campus, known as the Richard Hoggart structure, was built in 1792 and once housed the Royal Naval School.
Goldsmiths is placed 12th in Communication and Media Studies, 15th in Art and Design, and the top 50 in Anthropology, Sociology, and the Performing Arts, according to Quacquarelli Symonds (2021). In 2020, the institution will have approximately 10,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students enrolled. 37% of students are international students, while 52% of all undergraduates are mature students (aged 21 or older at the commencement of their studies). Furthermore, approximately one-third of Goldsmiths’ students are postgraduate students.
Goldsmiths is in New Cross, a densely populated neighborhood of south-east London with a thriving arts and music scene. The main structure, the Richard Hoggart structure, was constructed by architect John Shaw, Jr. (1803-1870) as a school (opened in 1844). The old Deptford Town Hall, constructed by Henry Vaughan Lanchester and Edwin Alfred Rickards, was purchased in 1998 and is now used for academic seminars and conferences.
In addition, Goldsmiths has constructed several more modern buildings to help develop the campus, including the RIBA award-winning Rutherford Building, which was completed in 1997, the Ben Pimlott Building, which was designed by Will Alsop and completed in 2005, and the Professor Stuart Hall Building (formerly the New Academic Building), which was completed in 2010.
The Rutherford Building, or library, contains three levels and provides students with access to a wide range of written and electronic materials. The third-floor library is thought to have the UK’s greatest collection of audio-visual media. Goldsmiths students, like all other University of London students, have full access to the collections of the Senate House Library in Bloomsbury, central London. In 2017, Goldsmiths’ Media and Communications department was ranked second in the UK and ninth globally, but by 2020, it had dropped to 18th in the UK. Goldsmiths’ total national ranks are about 70th, and they received a Bronze rating in the TEF, the lowest possible level.
The Rob Stringer Scholarship is intended to help an exceptional student study for the BMus Popular Music degree at Goldsmiths.
