Founded in 1891, Goldsmiths has been part of the University of London for over 100 years, and is ranked 9th in the UK for world-leading 4* research (Research Assessment Exercise 2008). It is a member of the 1994 Group, which brings together a select number of research-focused universities. Our unique academic approach comes from the interaction of 15 academic departments, together with a number of smaller centres and units such as the Centre for the Study of Invention and Social Process and the Interaction Research Studio.

Research at Goldsmiths is characterised by interdisciplinarity, creativity and experimentation. The development and application of new methods to established fields is evident in programmes such as visual anthropology, digital sociology and practice-based research in art, design and visual cultures. Famous for its creative departments, Goldsmiths alumni include among others Bridget Riley, Lucien Freud, Steve McQueen, Yinka Shonibare, Fiona Banner, Gillian Wearing, Fiona Rae and Damien Hirst.

Current research projects include:
