Eligibility criteria

You must meet the general eligibility criteria and regulations. You must also:

  • Be holding an offer of study on a taught Masters programme at Goldsmiths
  • Be eligible for Home fees

Application deadlines

Applications open 12 March 2021. The deadline for applications is 28 May 2021 at 12.00pm BST.

How to apply

When applications open you can apply through your MyGoldsmiths account. This is the online account that you created when you applied for a course at Goldsmiths. 

As part of the application, you will be asked to answer three questions relevant to the award that you are applying for. Our scholarships are very competitive, so it's important to include as much detailed information as you can. 

Selection process

Successful applicants will be selected on a competitive basis.

Initial shortlisting by eligibility criteria will be completed by our Scholarships Co-ordinator. All applicants who meet the eligibility criteria are then forwarded to the next selection stage.

Applications will then be considered by the relevant Head of Academic Department. They understand that applicants will have a broad range of differing skills, attributes and experiences, so they will give equal consideration to both the applicant’s academic record and their answers to the questions posed in the award application form. They also understand that what is important is the content of the answers and their relevance to the questions, not the standard of writing.  

Applications will be considered against the stated criteria. Final award recipients and reserve candidates will then be decided.

Please note that part-time students will receive the £1,000 fee waiver over two years.

Supporting documents 

We require the following supporting documents in order for your scholarship application to be considered: 

  • Photocopies of official college or university degree certificates and transcripts (if you have already uploaded the documents to support your course application then you are not required to do it again)
  • Two academic references relating to your current or most recent course, or professional references if appropriate.
