In addition to the wide range of degrees available to students attending Goldsmiths full or part-time, we also provide a selection of distance learning programmes through our association with the University of London International Programmes.

The University of London International Programmes has offered, since 1858, a variety of University of London degrees worldwide to students who can't attend university in person. Former students and alumni include Asa Briggs, Wole Soyinka and Derek Walcott. 

More than 100 programmes are currently available, and there are over 54,000 students in 180 countries. All degrees and diplomas offered through the University of London International Programmes are awarded by the University of London

Lead Colleges from throughout the University of London provide the academic leadership for the programmes. Goldsmiths is the Lead College for two subject areas, Computing and English, and we offer the following progammes: 

Goldsmiths academics develop each course syllabus, write subject guides and prepare and mark examinations. Students may sit their examinations in London, or in examination centres across the world.

Further information is available in the Computing and Humanities prospectuses, and the programme specification and regulations documents
