Is Goldsmiths University a good uni for Psychology, to become a future psychologist? I got accepted to Swansea, Stirling and Goldmsiths. I have always wanted to live in London so I really want to go for Goldsmiths, but yet Swansea is a uní with very good prestige and reputation. Which one to choose? Is goldsmiths good for the future (finding jobs)?

I'm also going there for Psychology Bsc. I had the same worries as you but after all I don't think employers are going to look at your uni and boom you'll be hired. You are going to be hired on what you know and if you go to a place that you enjoy you are going to learn much easier than if you feel like learning is an obligation. So choose the course you find more appealing and I hope we'll meet there. Go with your gut, I find it never fails me

I went to Goldsmiths and it was good, not amazing but still good. Its also improved a lot since I was there from what I hear from current undergrads. I would say the main thing is not where you go, but how well you learn and most important what experience you get. If you do go, try and get in with lecturers, offer to help with their research, look for internships or placements to get experience while you work, don't be afraid to put yourself out there and seek new experiences.
A degree in psych is useful, but employers will really be looking at how you've used it and what experience you've sought out.
