Goldsmiths, University of London

Course Introduction

Open to international students only, our BSc Creative Computing (with International Foundation Year) is suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for an undergraduate course. This four'year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of undergraduate study. International students who are admitted to this programme will normally be eligible for a four'year CAS and student visa. This will last the duration of the degree. Our English language and academic skills modules supplement your academic subjects. This degree will prepare you to take an active role in the creation of computational systems in arts, music, film, digital media, and other areas of the software industry that require creative individuals. You'll explore how computing interacts with a wide range of other subject areas, including applications in the arts and creative industries. Previous students have worked on paid professional creative projects, which have counted towards credits on their degree and have even lead to full'time work. You'll develop technical skills in programming for audio and visual media, and will have the freedom to use these skills in your own practical projects, creating games, applications, websites and interactive artworks. We'll prepare you to take an active role in the creation of computational systems in arts, music, film and digital media. Goldsmiths is one of the leading institutions in the UK for the application of computing in creative contexts. Our teaching is strongly focused on practical work in real world situations. We regularly invite industry experts to deliver lectures and talks, including people from the BBC, ITV, mainstream games companies and high profile computer artists and filmmakers.
