Princeton students can study abroad at Goldsmith’s, a campus university located in a vibrant area in South East London that is just 10 minutes by train from central London. Students will experience a small liberal arts college, with courses in a variety of subjects from anthropology, social sciences, art, politics, and more.
Goldsmiths is part of the University of London, a federation of more than 40 colleges and institutes. Their study abroad program gives international students the opportunity to live, study and socialize with Goldsmiths undergraduate students for one or two terms, or a full academic year. It also offers students from different educational systems the opportunity to gain academic credits from a British university. New Cross is a vibrant area in South East London that's situated just 10 minutes by train from the center of the city. Described by The New York Times as a hub of creative talent, the area has a thriving music and arts scene, fantastic restaurants, buzzing cafes, and a genuinely diverse and eclectic population.
For more detailed information about study abroad at Goldsmiths, read the Goldsmiths Study Abroad Prospectus.
Courses:As the Goldsmiths Study Abroad programme is truly interdisciplinary, modules of interest to you may be located in different subject areas (e.g. “Cognitive Behavioural Therapy ” is under Therapeutic Studies, not Psychology) – make sure you look through them all! Please note: Study Abroad students can choose modules from across departments, with the exception of Art and Design. If you wish to study Art or Design you must specify this in your application to the Study Abroad programme.
Modules listed are from the 2019/20 academic year and should be treated as an indicative selection. For a list of available courses, please visit the online course catalog.
- Fall semester typically runs from early September to early December
- Spring semester typically runs from early December to late April

Goldsmith's guarantees a space in Goldsmiths accommodation for all Study Abroad students who apply before the accommodation deadline. All students who are here for a single term will be housed in Loring Hall, which is based on campus. Students who are studying for the full year will be able to choose from the list of accommodation options.
The Students’ Union is home to all of Goldsmiths' societies and sports teams. There’s a society for everything – from Harry Potter, to yoga, to knitting, to salsa dancing – so you will always find like-minded people, as well as activities to get involved in. You can find a full list of societies, sports teams, and communities on the SU website. The Union is also a hub of student representation, with four elected sabattical officers and several part-time officers who represent the student body, particularly marginalised groups. The SU also offers a range of advice and support to students.
The Students' Union also has a café and events space, and tons of things happening throughout the academic year. Visit the SU 'What's On' page to find out more.
