Student insight: developing skills

Watch Goldsmiths discuss how they have developed their skills and confidence through their extra-curricular activities.

In this video, two students about to graduate from Goldsmiths, University of London, discuss the activities they have undertaken whilst studying, and how these have helped them develop their skills.

Many universities have ways to help students develop their personal and professional skills at university and honour those who do. At Goldsmiths, for example, we have the Gold Award.

Does the university where you study or plan to study have a similar award? Look up the resources that your university can offer.
