Frequently asked questions (FAQs)
Can I apply for the Goldsmiths Masters Bursary if I paid £9,000 tuition fees for one or two years?
No, unfortunately the Goldsmiths Masters Bursary is only available for students who started their course in 2012-13 and paid £9,000 every year.
I think I'm eligible to apply for two awards – can I apply for more than one?
You're able to apply for as many awards as you like, as long as you meet the eligibility criteria for each award. Each application you submit must be complete. We are not responsible for photocopying references or transcripts to attach to each application.
I've logged into MyGoldsmiths account and selected 'Apply for Scholarships' and nothing happens – what should I do?
Are you using Internet Explorer as your browser? If so please use Google Chrome of Mozilla Firefox. The web pages do not display correctly with Internet Explorer for some reason. Sorry for any inconvenience.
I've selected Goldsmiths as my insurance choice, can I still apply for a scholarship?
Unfortunately not. If you've selected Goldsmiths as your second choice we are unable to consider you for any of our awards.
Do I have to submit a reference?
We'll use the reference you submitted along with your admissions application.
I didn't submit a reference with my admissions application, what do I do now?
What should I say in my supporting statement?
You'll be asked to answer three questions relevant to the award you are applying for. Make sure that you answer these questions clearly and that you stay within the word limit. Please read our guidance for supporting statements for more information.
I haven't finished my studies yet so how do I tell you about my results?
We'll access your predicted grades/classification from your admissions application. If you didn't provide these details when applying please supply them as an uploaded document with your award application. Your predicted results should come from a tutor or teacher, not directly from you.
If your scholarship application is successful we will contact you later in the year to request your certificate/transcript.

All applicants will be informed by email, which will be sent to the email address given on your application form.
My application was unsuccessful, can I find out why?
We're sorry but unfortunately we're unable to provide feedback on an unsuccessful decision; this is due to the high volume of applications we receive each year.
