Hi! Looking for advice from someone more familiar with the London uni scene, experiences, etc. I recently received unconditional offers from LSE (Politics & Communications) and Goldsmiths (Political Communication and Media&Communications). While the LSE is currently my top choice (for obvious reasons such as world class lecturers, prestige, networking opportunities, etc - also that my husband will be studying there and going to the same uni would probably make our daily life easier), I also wonder whether I might be discarding Goldsmiths purely due name-dropping value (which in this world is unfortunately not a small thing). Goldsmiths seems like an interesting uni for more creative, left-wing, political and alternative types, which would be an accurate description for myself. It also means I would get to study along people doing MAs in Radio, Documentary, etc and hopefully join clubs, societies, workshops, etc.. which is something I'm also interested in. My BA is in Philosophy, so I'm also looking forward to getting out of the exclusively academic experience. So - I guess my questions are... Am I crazy for still considering Goldsmiths with an unconditional offer from LSE? Should this be a no-brainer? Is there room for more creative types to grow at LSE? Radio/documentary workshops? I guess I would just love to hear from people from LSE that might have a bit in common with my profile or from people in the Media Department at Goldsmiths. I know the decision comes down to me, but I would to hear your thoughts on this, since I don't really know much about the Goldsmiths experience or LSE in real life. Thanks!
Hello to allI am planning to start an MA/MFA in visual arts this upcoming fall and have been offered places both at RCA and at Goldsmiths. The program at RCA seems to relate more to my work and I had a better feel during my interview with them; but I like the possible interaction at Goldsmiths with other faculties and err...I'm still on the fence. (Note: I haven't studied arts into now and haven't been to London before). Has anyone attended any of these programs/could give some insight ?many thanks in advance !
