2021-22 Results

Programmes which end on 24 June 2022 and 1 July 2022

The end of year results for 2021-22 programmes which end 24 June 2022 and 1 July 2022 will be released from Monday 4 July until Friday 22 July 2022.

The summer results for students taking resits in August will be released from Tuesday 6 September to Friday 16 September 2022.

For students receiving results in July and September, Academic Board has agreed to invoke specific provisions within the College’s Exceptional Academic Regulations (EAR) to help mitigate the impact on students of the current marking and assessment boycott. 

The Exceptional Academic Regulations (PDF) highlight the provisions that could be used by a Programme Board of Examiners in determining students’ results where a student’s full mark profile is not available because of the boycott.

Decisions taken under the EAR could result in a provisional decision (either a provisional module mark, and/or a provisional progression decision and/or a provisional award). Where a result is provisional, we will confirm this when releasing this to a student. Provisional results will be made final once all marks are available and have been confirmed in the usual way through our examination processes: students will be notified and final results released once this has taken place.

Students considered under the Exceptional Academic Regulations may receive delayed results until Friday 16th September 2022.

Updated information (21 July 2022) 

The College has now held its examination boards (Programme and College Boards) to consider results for its undergraduate students. 

This process has allowed us to identify those students who have completed all assessments, but due to the marking and assessment boycott, we do not yet have confirmed marks returned.  

There are also some students who have marks missing for other reasons, for example, those students who took modules outside of the College and we are still waiting for confirmation of those marks from another university. 

We are still receiving marks and confirming results for students and will continue to release results to students (via MyGoldsmiths) until 22 July 2022.

This includes taking some additional measures where marks have not been returned due to the marking and assessment boycott. 

All marks that are returned will be confirmed and results released to students up to the end of the day on 22 July 2022. 

If we are unable to confirm results by this date, we will contact you at the end of the day Friday 22 July 2022 to notify you of the next steps and provide further information and advice to you. 

Final year undergraduates who have a provisional award are invited to attend the graduation ceremony or can choose to attend a later ceremony once the award is confirmed: see the graduations page for further details. 

If you are applying for further study at another university or for a job with an employer and need to provide a copy of transcript, which you do not currently have access to (either because you have a provisional award or because your results are not yet available), we can provide you with a letter that confirms the reasons for this and the latest date by which we expect to provide your transcript. 

You can request this from Registry (@gold.ac.uk).

Updated information (22 July 2022) – delayed results  

As of end of Friday 22 July 2022 we have published all available results to students that have been confirmed through our processes. 

You will have received a message notifying you that your results are available to access on MyGoldsmiths. 

We have also emailed all students that we are not yet able to release results to because of the current marking and assessment boycott. 

That message sets out the next steps the College is taking to confirm all marks and the latest date by which we expect to confirm results. 

If you have not received your results, please do check your Goldsmiths email for the message we have sent you.   

We will continue to receive marks, process results, and publish these to students between 25 July and 16 September 2022. 

You will be notified once your results have been published and you can access these via MyGoldsmiths in the usual way. 

Additionally, we will be emailing final year undergraduate students on Monday 25 July to confirm the next steps and timelines for confirming your award. 

Please do check your Goldsmiths email for the message we have sent you. 

FAQs for students with delayed results 

I need to apply for further study and I have not yet received my transcript which is required for my application, what can I do? 

You can request a letter from Registry (@gold.ac.uk), which confirms the reason your full transcript is not ready and sets out the date by which we expect to provide confirmation of your marks. 

I do not yet know if I can continue my studies at Goldsmiths next year but need to confirm my accommodation and funding arrangements for next year.  How can I do this? 

We continue to publish results to students between 25 July until 16 September.  Once your results are ready you will be notified to check MyGoldsmiths. 

While you are waiting for your results, you can request a letter from Registry (@gold.ac.uk) that will confirm the reasons we are unable to confirm your results at this time, and the date by which this will be released. 

I have received some but not all of my results but I don’t understand what this means and some of the results are not correct, who can help me? 

Please contact the Registry Operations team who can access your student record and advise you on what your results mean.  You can also seek advice from your personal tutor. 

I am a final year student and intend to apply for a Graduate Route visa but am unable to until I have completed my studies, what can I do? 

If your current visa has an expiry date after 16 September 2022 (the latest date we expect to confirm results) you should still be able to apply for a Graduate Route visa. 

If your visa expiry date is earlier than 16 September 2022, we will contact you directly with advice.  You can also speak to the Immigration Advisory Service (Immigration (@gold.ac.uk)) for advice. 

I am a final year student and was expecting to attend the July graduation ceremony, can I still attend? 

Only final year students who have received a confirmed or provisional award can attend a graduation ceremony. 

If you have not received your result but have booked onto the graduation ceremony, you can request a refund for tickets and gown hire up until 5 August 2022.

Final year students who have a provisional award can attend the July ceremony as planned or can choose to attend a later ceremony once the award is confirmed.   

The next ceremonies will take place 17-20 January 2023. 

Once awards are confirmed and your results published, you will be invited to attend the next ceremony. 

As I have not received my results as expected, I want this matter to be looked into.  How do I do that? 

We have written to all students that we are not yet able to confirm results. 

That message sets out the actions we are taking to resolve this matter and the timeframe in which we are doing so. 

If you are dissatisfied with the actions we are taking, as with any other aspect of your student experience, you are entitled to submit a complaint.

However, for the avoidance of doubt, The College will not be able to resolve impact that the marking assessment boycott is having on you at this stage, because we are currently doing all we can to get results released as soon as possible.

Therefore, your complaint will need to be placed on hold until after a point in which results are released, so we can adequately assess the impact of this delay to individual students.

Updated information (3 August 2022) – delayed results 

As of 29 July 2022, the marking and assessment boycott has come to an end.  This means that marks previously withheld will now be released. 

We have written to all affected students to provide information on next steps and timelines for publishing confirmed results. 

For students whose results were affected by the marking and assessment boycott, we will be prioritising marking and results confirmation and publication for final year and international students. 

This includes final year students who have a provisional award that needs to be confirmed. 

All affected students can expect to receive results between 1 and 31 August 2022. 

Results will be released on a rolling basis once all marks are returned and progression and award decisions confirmed. 

You will be notified via your College email when your results are available, and you can access these via MyGoldmisths in the usual way. 

For students with provisional progression decisions, we will be confirming and publishing your full results during the same period unless you are taking assessment(s) during the Late Summer Resit (LSR) Period, in which case we will be publishing full results between 6 and 16 September 2022 once the LSR period is complete. 

Programmes which end on 30 September 2022

The end of year results for 2021-22 programmes which end 30 September 2022 will be released from Monday 10 October until Friday 11 November 2022.

How you will get your results

When your results are available to view on MyGoldsmiths you will be notified via email from the Registry team.

If you do not receive your results during these periods or have a query with the results you have received, you should email Registry (@gold.ac.uk).

We advise that you attempt to log into My Goldsmiths ahead of the results release dates to ensure that you can access your results when they are available. If you have any issues logging in, now or when your results are released, please contact mygoldhelp (@gold.ac.uk).

You should also check your name and address(es) we have on record, including spellings. This is particularly important if you’re a final year student as your transcript of results will be sent to your home address, when we are able to do so. We will also confirm your home address with the University of London for the posting of your certificate. 

If you are a final year student whose home address is not in the Latin alphabet (e.g. it is in Mandarin, Arabic etc.), please ensure you follow these instructions.

Your result on My Goldsmiths will indicate if you need to resit an assessment, in which case you should visit your department’s page on Learn.gold, or contact them directly. All resits will be conducted remotely.

You can only appeal a result within 21 days of the publication of your results on MyGoldsmiths.

If you’re unhappy with a result you should first contact your department. If the result is confirmed and you’re still unhappy, you can start the formal appeals process, providing you meet the grounds for appeal.

If you are a final year student with no debt to the College, who completed in July 2022, a copy of your transcript of results was posted to your home address at the end of August 2022. 

If you are a final year student with no debt to the College who completed in September 2022, a copy of your transcript of results was posted to your home address at the end of October 2022. 

If you are a final year student with no debt to the College who completed in October/November 2022, a copy of your transcript of results was posted to your home address at the beginning of December 2022. 

If you have a question about a result or resit, please get in touch with your department.

If you have a question about the Goldsmiths Academic Regulations, please contact assessments (@gold.ac.uk).

If you’re feeling anxious or low, or you just need someone to talk to, the Wellbeing Service can offer advice and support.
