Thank you for signing up to a short course at Goldsmiths. The idea behind the short course scheme is to go back to Goldsmiths' roots in providing adult education and access for all. What distinguishes us from many of our competitiors is that our short courses are taught by the very same academics who teach on the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. We welcome you to our diverse community and hope that your experience here is so positive that you come back time and time again! At the end of your course you will have an opportunity to provide feedback - please do take the time to tell us how we are doing so that we can build on what we have started. In the meantime, if you have any queries along the way, then please don't hesitate to contact us. We hope you enjoy your learning journey.
Any questions please email the team at firstname.lastname@example.org
For some short courses, you will be expected to read material in various formats (online, photocopied) before and during the course. You may also be expected to undertake assignments/homework throughout the course. Your course tutor will provide you with more information about course content either by email prior to course commencement or at your first class.
Getting to Goldsmiths
Most of our short courses will take place in the Richard Hoggart Building. When you sign up for a short course we'll let you know where your class is taking place.
