2019-20 Teaching and assessments

We have changed the way results are calculated, resits, progression, and how modules are assessed, to help students impacted by Covid-19.

Start of 2020-21 academic year

Goldsmiths will be open for learning this autumn.

Autumn term will start on 5 October 2020, with online induction activities from 28 September 2020.

For non-standard programmes (such as PGCE and Social Work) programme enrolment may take place earlier. The date for this will be communicated by the Department directly.

We are working on new approaches to make the start of term as exciting, welcoming and inclusive as possible, as well as looking ahead at how we connect with our community throughout the academic year.

Learning on campus

From the autumn learning will be delivered through a mix of online and in-person.

It’s important to understand that we are not offering students the opportunity to study completely online. This means that students will be on campus for some of their teaching and learning activities.

We are making provision for students to study online if they must self-isolate, have underlying health conditions that make them vulnerable to more serious Covid-19 infection or have caring responsibilities.

Due to the wide range of subjects offered at Goldsmiths there are likely to be differences in how courses are taught. We will endeavour to ensure that you will receive the same standard of learning.

We will be contacting students and applicants about changes to the way their programme is delivered by mid-August.


The library building is now closed. See our guide to accessing online Library services and information.
