Clearing is now closed for 2020, but you can apply to study on one of our programmes in 2021. Use the course finder to find out more about our degree programmes.

The lead up to the announcement of A-levels, or other exam results, is often an anxious time. Clearing can give you opportunities you may not have considered before.

“The person who I was talking to during Clearing was so relaxing, so calming. He took time with me and told me my future options.”
Kamal, BSc Computer Science

How it works

Explore the courses we have on offer. Please get in touch with us if you know you want to change your plans and come to Goldsmiths.

We would also advise you to look at the Life on Campus section of our website and watch some of our videos about what makes Goldsmiths special on YouTube to see if it is the right choice of university for you.

Consider a foundation year

Goldsmiths offers degrees with an additional foundational year. These four-year degrees can be an ideal choice for students who don’t feel quite ready to begin an undergraduate programme yet and want to consolidate their knowledge for an academic year. They are also suited to mature students looking to return to education. Take a look at our four-year degrees in Media & Communications, ComputingPsychology, English, History and Anthropology.
