Goldsmiths launches new Short Courses

Goldsmiths writes:

Goldsmiths, University of London is this autumn launching an exciting range of short courses to be taught on campus in the evenings and at weekends.

The south London institution is drawing on its founding principles with the launch of 13 new programmes to compliment its current short course provision.

From using the latest concepts in psychology in a business context to writing moving short stories, the diverse range of subjects being offered reflects the broad community of learning at Goldsmiths.

Sharing this experience with the wider world is a driving belief at the university, with many of the short courses being led by the same academics who teach on the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

The move also sees Goldsmiths going back to its roots. Opening in 1891, the then-Goldsmiths Technical and Recreative Institute provided short courses focusing on "the promotion of technical skill, knowledge, health and general well-being among men and women of the industrial, working and artisan classes".

Goldsmiths Warden Patrick Loughrey said: “These courses will see us throw open the doors to the university and share our love of learning with London and the world. We are using our expertise and knowledge to launch what I hope will become a very successful part of the Goldsmiths offer.”

The new programmes establish Goldsmiths as one of the leading providers of short courses in London.

The courses will be drawn from the following disciplines:
  • Anthropology
  • Business, Innovation & Marketing
  • Creative Computing & Design
  • English & Comparative Literature
