How to apply

Full-time degrees

You apply for our undergraduate degrees online through UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service).

Full instructions are available on the UCAS website; alternatively you can ask your school or college, or local British Council office if you're an international student, for guidance. You can also download our guide to the the UCAS process [pdf].

Art and design degrees
If you're applying for BA Design, BA Fine Art, or BA Fine Art and History of Art, you follow slightly different procedures to other applicants. Please see Art and design degrees for details.

Part-time degrees

You apply direct to Goldsmiths. To apply for one of our part-time programmes, click on the 'Apply now' button on the relevant online prospectus entry. We'll be considering part-time applications up to 31 July.

International students

International students apply in the same way as UK and EU applicants - online through UCAS. You can study any of our full-time programmes.

We also offer International Pathways for students who do not yet have the required entry qualifications for undergraduate degrees. The Pathways include a year of foundation studies and English Language studies where necessary.

English Language programmes

To apply for the Pre-sessional Programme, please download a Centre for English Language and Academic Writing application form.

Exchange students

If your university has an official exchange agreement with Goldsmiths, you can apply through your home university as an exchange student. Our Study Abroad Programme has details of courses available to exchange students.

When to apply

  Earliest date Latest date
UK/EU applicants 1 September 15 January [15 October if applying to Cambridge or Oxford universities]
International (non-EU) applicants 1 September 30 June

Places on popular programmes fill up quickly, so we always advise you to submit your application as early as possible.

Deferred entry

If you're considering applying for deferred entry, please contact the Admissions Tutor listed on the relevant online prospectus entry. Most departments recognise the value of a gap year between school and university, but some are not able to accept these applications because of the demand for their degrees.


Goldsmiths doesn't accept students transferring part-way through a year, or into the third year of any of our courses, but it's possible to apply to join at the beginning of the second year of courses in most Goldsmiths departments. How to apply as a transfer student.
