New student enrolment

Before you begin your studies, you will need to enrol on your chosen course. We will email you with full instructions on how to enrol.

Primary page content

Online pre-enrolment

We will email you when you can pre-enrol.  During online pre-enrolment, you will be asked to confirm your details, provide additional information, pay any fees and agree to our terms and conditions.

You should receive your email within three working days of accepting your offer from Goldsmiths, having met the requirements of the offer.  If you haven't accepted your offer you need to do this in My Goldsmiths.

If you have accepted your offer and haven't received an email contact studentrecords (@gold.ac.uk).

Late enrolment and providing outstanding qualifications

Go to the Student Centre to complete your enrolment.

If you have already enrolled but have documents or qualifications to show you should take them to the Student Centre.

Required documents: UK and EEA nationals

During personal enrolment you must show proof of identity – either your passport, driving license photocard, national identity card, or birth certificate.

Please note: if your driving licence states that your place of birth was outside the EEA or Switzerland you will need to provide proof of nationality in addition (passport or national identity card).

You may also be required to show proof of academic qualifications – original certificates, a transcript of results or a confirmation of award letter, stamped and signed by the institution (if the original documents have not been checked on application).

Please note that all documents must be in English, and must be originals – we are unable to accept photocopied documents. Where documents are not in English, certified translations must be provided.

Required documents: non-EEA nationals

During personal enrolment you must show your passport and a valid visa (see below for more on visas).

You must also:

  • Pay tuition fees or show proof of private sponsorship – if you are not in receipt of government funding, i.e. student Loans, student finance or federal loans.
  • Show proof of qualifications – original certificates, a transcript of results or a confirmation of award letter, stamped and signed by the institution (if the original documents have not been checked on application).

Please note that all documents must be in English, and must be originals – we are unable to accept photocopied documents. Where documents are not in English, certified translations must be provided.

Visa

If you are a non-EEA national you will be required to show evidence that you have a valid visa, residence permit or immigration document that permits study at Goldsmiths.

This means you will need to bring your original visa and passport with you to your personal enrolment session. You should also bring any letters you have received from the Embassy or from the Home Office inside the UK.

Your visa should cover the full length of your course of study. If your visa will expire before your course finishes, please email immigration (@gold.ac.uk) to check whether you can enrol with your current visa.

Tier 4 (general) visa

If you have applied for a Tier 4 student visa to study with us, then you should have used a visa delivery code to make sure your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) card is delivered to our Immigration Advisory Service.

If you did use the code your BRP will be given to you at your personal enrolment on campus – you do not need to collect it before enrolment. Find out more about BRP cards.

If you did not use the code you will need to collect your BRP from your nominated Post Office before attending your enrolment session. Check the letter you received from the Embassy in your home country to confirm where your visa is going to be delivered to – if you are unsure please email immigration (@gold.ac.uk) for advice.

Accessing Goldsmiths systems and your email account

Your account details will be sent to you within 24 hours of completing online pre-enrolment. Help with your Goldsmiths IT account.

Goldsmiths ID card

Once you have completed personal enrolment on campus, you will be able to collect your Goldsmiths ID card.

You can speed up this process by uploading your photo in advance.

You will need your ID card to enter the Library, borrow books and access certain parts of campus. If you would like to use the Library before then you can visit as a guest.

Changing or correcting your name

It is Goldsmiths policy to record students with their legal name, as given on any formal document (passport, driving licence or national ID) shown at enrolment.

This means the name we have on our enrolment system must match the name on your ID. If your ID has a different name please contact admissions (@gold.ac.uk) before pre-enrolling online.
