"The MA opened my eyes to multi-layered arts and cultural scenes, and diverse approaches to culture industry. I think one of the most important experiences and achievements at Goldsmiths was rebuilding and refiring my enthusiasm for the arts and culture, extending my theoretical knowledge and encouraging me to develop potential and my own perspective in creative industry areas. Since coming back to South Korea in 2011, I've been writing a book on the context of sustainable cultural practices. I was also involved in a city regeneration research project of a local government in Korea, and I am currently managing a cultural tour programme in Seoul, Korea."

When to apply
Applicants are encouraged to submit by 31 May, though applications after this date may still be considered to start the following September.
We encourage you to complete your application as early as possible, even if you haven't finished your current programme of study. It's very common to be offered a place that is conditional on you achieving a particular qualification.
Late applications will only be considered if there are spaces available.
Admission to many programmes is by interview, unless you live outside the UK. Occasionally, we'll make candidates an offer of a place on the basis of their application and qualifications alone.
You should have (or expect to be awarded) an undergraduate degree of at upper least second class standard in a relevant/related subject.
You might also be considered for some programmes if you aren’t a graduate or your degree is in an unrelated field, but have relevant experience and can show that you have the ability to work at postgraduate level.
If your first language isn't English, you need to demonstrate a minimum score of 7.0 in IELTS (including 7.0 in the written element) or equivalent to enroll and study on this programme.
Please check our English language requirements for more information.
