We offer one internationally-reputed undergraduate honours degree: BA Design. Over the past ten years we have had graduates go on to work for world class design agencies such as Heatherwick Studio, Dyson and Burberry, as well as setting up their own award-winning businesses such as Kin and UsCreates. You can see student work on our blog.

We welcome applications from students reflecting a diverse range of interests, experiences and capabilities.

BA (Hons) Design

Design isn’t just a way of making and doing; it’s a way of understanding and engaging with the world.

At Goldsmiths we offer one undergraduate design degree, BA Design. Here, Head of Department Matt Ward (formerly course convenor) gives an overview of the degree.


At postgraduate level we offer a range of exciting programmes. Our approach is critical, creative and cutting edge in defining what makes these important areas for further study and we therefore welcome students with a wide range of qualifications, interests and practices.
