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.
