How to apply for postgraduate taught & research degrees

In this section


Applications and admissions

You can apply directly to Goldsmiths via the website by clicking the ‘apply now’ button on the programme page of the course you’re interested in.

Exceptions to this are our PGCE programmes where you are required to apply through UCAS Teacher Training, and our MA in Social Work where you must also apply through UCAS.

Some programmes have particular application procedures, so always check the relevant programme page first.

Personal statement

As part of your application you will be asked to upload a personal statement. This is your chance to differentiate yourself from the other applicants applying for your programme, and to describe why we should offer you a place to study with us. Read our guidance on writing your personal statement.

When to apply

We accept applications from October for students wanting to start the following September.

We encourage you to complete your application as early as possible, even if you haven't finished your current programme of study. It's very common to be offered a place that’s conditional on you achieving a particular qualification.

If you're applying for funding you may be subject to an application deadline. Find out more about funding opportunities for UK/EU students and international students.

Late applications will only be considered if there are spaces available.

After you’ve submitted your application it will be reviewed by our academic staff. You may also be invited to an interview (either in person or via Skype). Once your application and qualifications have been considered, we’ll let you know whether you’ll be offered a place.
