How to apply


What's the right course for me?

Goldsmiths offers a wide variety of courses including programmes that have been specifically designed for international students. Find out more about the courses we offer. Once you've made your decision, here's how you can make your application:


You can make your application through UCAS, an online application system. The system allows you to choose up to five different universities and apply with one application. 

Applications open on 1 September for entry the following September. The normal closing date is 15 January, but some courses will accept applications until 30 June. You should refer to individual programme pages to see whether your course is one of these, and to see whether there are any additional application requirements. You are advised to apply as early as possible as courses have limited places. Applications are usually assessed within two months and can be managed online via UCAS.

As well as information about your education history, and the courses you’re choosing, you’ll also need to provide a personal statement as part of your application. This is your chance to explain how your academic experience is relevant to the course you want to study. You’ll also have an opportunity to tell us about relevant extracurricular activities you’ve taken part in and how they make you stand out.


For the majority of postgraduate programmes you can apply via our website. Simply click the ‘apply now’ button on your chosen programme page. Some programmes have different application procedures, so always check the programme page before making your application.
