Article

Our Study Abroad programme gives international students the opportunity to live, study and socialise with Goldsmiths students for either the a term or a full academic year. We have help with English for those who are not fluent speakers, and opportunities to come as a graduate too.

Study options

Full academic year

The full year programme is one academic year (9 months) of study, from 25 September 2017 to 15 June 2018.

You can compile a study programme from a range of disciplines or take a more focused approach by choosing to specialise in a single major discipline.

Credit Structure

You can choose from a selection of either 15 or 30 credit modules from different disciplines across our many academic departments.

You are expected to undertake a full module load for your period of study. You must choose modules that add up to the following number of credits (usually 4 modules per term):

120 Credits  60 Credits

You should check with your home university first about which modules taken at Goldsmiths will provide you with the credit. We ask you to provide both first and secondary choices on the application form. This is because it is not always possible to offer you your first choice modules due to limits on numbers or timetable clashes.

We examine or assess your performance on each module, and award you a grade under the British grading system. We issue you with a Goldsmiths transcript that includes the number of credits you have taken, but your home university or college may interpret these in different ways. There are set requirements for each module that you will be expected to meet. No modules can be taken by audit.
