Distance and flexible learning at Goldsmiths

Our distance learning courses combine our expertise and the flexibility to study wherever you live or work.

Since 1858, the University of London has offered a variety of distance learning programmes to students who can’t attend the university in person. There are currently more than 100 programmes available, with over 50,000 students enrolled worldwide. Former students and alumni include Asa Briggs, Nelson Mandela, Wole Soyinka and Derek Walcott. 

In association with the University of London, Goldsmiths is responsible for two subject areas: Computing and English. Our academics design the syllabus for each course or module, develop the learning materials and mark examinations. Although you’ll be studying remotely, you can get support from teaching intuitions, some of which are recognised by the University of London’s Teaching Centres Recognition Framework.

All of our distance learning degrees and diplomas are awarded by the University of London. University of London staff manage all student administration, including enquiries, applications, registration and the dispatch of some student materials.

Further information about the programmes is available in the Computing & Information Systems and Creative Computing or Humanities prospectuses.
