2.9 Enrolment

2.9.1

Goldsmiths determines the means, time and place of enrolment. Enrolment may be electronic or by completion of a paper form.

2.9.2

Students will normally not be permitted to enrol more than 28 days after the official start date of their programme.

Enrolment after 28 days will be conditional upon the College being satisfied that late enrolment will not have a detrimental impact upon a student’s learning and ability to meet the learning outcomes of their programme of study.

The College will maintain a procedure for reaching decisions on late enrolment.

2.9.3

No student will be permitted to enrol concurrently for more than one award (i.e. degree, diploma or certificate) or to be enrolled at Goldsmiths whilst enrolled at another higher education provider.

2.9.4

Students can apply for a period of interruption of studies in accordance with the College’s published procedure.

Students are responsible for notifying the College of a decision to interrupt and applications should be made in advance of the interruption beginning and no later than 2 weeks of the last day of attendance.

Exceptional consideration may be given to applications which include a retrospective period of interruption only where there are exceptional circumstances which prevented the student from making an application at the time.

Interruptions in excess of 2 years shall be permitted only in exceptional circumstances (other than where an interruption was taken in 2019-20 and/or 2020-21 which will not count towards the 2 year maximum).

2.9.5

Students may apply to withdraw from their programme of study and must do so in accordance with the published requirements.

Applications must be submitted to the College in advance of the last date of attendance and no later than 2 weeks of the last day of attendance.

Exceptional consideration may be given to retrospective applications only where there are exceptional circumstances preventing a student from making an application at the time.

2.9.6

The College may consider individual requests for reinstatement of a student following a period of withdrawal as long as a period of no more than 12 months has elapsed since the last date of registration.

An application for reinstatement must be made in accordance with the College’s published procedure.
