About the handbook
As an international student, you have made a brave and exciting decision to pursue your studies in a new and unfamiliar environment. We are thrilled to have you here and we hope that your time with us will be both fulfilling and enjoyable. As an international student, you are embarking on a unique and exciting journey that comes with its own set of challenges and opportunities.
While London is a great place to study, it can also be challenging to navigate, especially for those who are new to the UK. That's why we have created this handbook, a comprehensive guide that will help you make the most of your time at Goldsmiths.
To help you navigate your way through your academic and personal life at Goldsmiths, we have created this Handbook for International Students. In these pages, you will find a wealth of information about everything from finding accommodation and opening a bank account, to navigating the transport system and making new friends.
We understand that adjusting to life in a new country can be overwhelming, and we want to provide you with all the tools and resources you need to make your transition as smooth as possible. We also know that studying in a new country can be daunting, but we hope that this Handbook will give you the information and tools you need to settle in quickly and smoothly.
