Study abroad

Programmes for students wishing to spend a period of study abroad at Goldsmiths

How to apply

If you wish to spend a period of study at Goldsmiths, on credit-bearing courses but without completing a full degree programme, please print and complete a Study Abroad application form  [PDF format - 84K] or email the International Office, if you would like a printed copy sent to you.

You must fully complete all sections of the application form and return it to the International Office at Goldsmiths, together with any additional documentation requested. Please write clearly, using block capitals. Unreadable or incomplete applications cannot be processed. Please check your application carefully, as mistakes will cause delay.

You will need to send the following documents with your application:

  • a reference
  • a copy of your academic transcripts or exam results
  • a portfolio of your work if applying for practice-based art or design courses

Returning your work

Please ensure you pack your portfolio securely as Goldsmiths cannot accept any responsibility for any loss or damage. If you'd like us to return your work, please enclose a suitable self-addressed return envelope, together with the appropriate reply-paid coupon or postage stamps. We cannot return your work if you do not do so; in such cases, you must arrange collection of your work by the end of the first week of October 2012 - Goldsmiths will arrange automatic disposal after this date.

Application form guidance notes

We will use the information you provide in sections 4, 6 and 7 of the application form to assess your suitability and eligibility for the courses. Other information will be used for statistical and planning purposes, and for seeking to make arrangements for disabled students who are admitted. If you become a student at Goldsmiths as a result of this application, information which you provide on this form will become part of your student record. If you do not, it will be destroyed, normally approximately one year after your proposed entry date.

If there is not enough space for your entry on any section of the form you should add separate sheets and note on the relevant section of the form that you have done so. Read your entries on the form before you send it to us and remember that we only have the information you provide and cannot consider an incomplete application.

You are advised to keep a copy of your completed form for your own records before submitting this copy to the College.

It may be possible to make this application form available in a large print format - please contact us on +44 (0)20 7919 7700.

Offers of places

After you have accepted our offer of a place, you will be sent a confirmation letter together with an Acceptance Sheet which you must sign and return to Goldsmiths to secure your place. Since Goldsmiths receives more applications for Visiting status than it can accept, submission of an application is not a guarantee of acceptance.
