The University of London is a federation of some forty colleges and institutes, not all of which offer programs in music. Goldsmiths College, founded in 1891, is one of the largest music departments in Britain. A central focus is the study of contemporary musical culture from jazz to 'new complexity'. Research units include an Afghanistan Music Unit, a Centre for Russian Music, an Asian Music Unit, a Contemporary Music Research Unit, a Popular Music Research Unit and a Unit for Sound Practice Research. The College welcomes applications from overseas (non-European Union) students. Facilities include a well-equipped electronic music studio and a collection of historical keyboard instruments. The library holds the Serge Prokofiev Archive and the recently established Alfred Schnittke Archive. The Department of Professional and Community Education offers various short courses involving music, music technology, music therapy and studio and recording techniques. The College provides easy access London's many concert halls, opera houses and research libraries.
