You apply directly to Goldsmiths using our online application system.
Before submitting your application you'll need to have:
- Details of your education history, including the dates of all exams/assessments
- The email address of your referee who we can request a reference from, or alternatively an electronic copy of your academic reference
- A personal statement – this can either be uploaded as a Word Document or PDF, or completed online
Please see our guidance on writing a postgraduate statement
- If available, an electronic copy of your educational transcript (this is particularly important if you have studied outside of the UK, but isn’t mandatory)
You'll be able to save your progress at any point and return to your application by logging in using your username/email and password.
When to apply
We accept applications from October for students wanting to start the following September.
Application deadline: 23 April 2021
Interviews: late April/early May 2021
Decisions: late May/early June 2021
Please note that we have a provisional application deadline of 23 April 2021. This is because the availability of places is likely to be significantly reduced after this date and we may not be able to consider applications after this date.
We strongly recommend that you submit your application by 23 April 2021. Applicants who are successfully shortlisted will be invited for a telephone or Zoom interview during late April/early May 2021. Further details will be provided via email correspondence.
If you're applying for external funding from one of the Research Councils, make sure you submit your application by the deadline they've specified.
Late applications will only be considered if there are spaces available.
Admission to many programmes is by interview unless you live outside the UK. Occasionally, we'll make candidates an offer of a place on the basis of their application and qualifications alone.
