Creativity has always been the hallmark of Goldsmiths. Academic excellence and imaginative course content combine to make a place where creative minds can thrive and ideas are allowed to grow. We’re located in New Cross, just 10 minutes from the centre of London with some of the cheapest university accommodation on offer.

Our courses and research activities span the arts, humanities, social sciences, cultural studies, computing, business and management across 20 academic departments.

The QS World Rankings place us in the top five UK Universities for Art & Design and Communication & Media Studies. In 2014 the Research Excellence Framework rated us in the UK’s top 25 Universities for the quality of our research.

 

For more than 200 years, generations of students have received an education here on the site of Goldsmiths. The site used to be owned by the Royal Naval School until 1891 when it was acquired by the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths. In 1904, the Company gifted the Institute to the University of London on the condition that the buildings should always be used for educational purposes. On 29 September 1905, the new Goldsmiths’ College formally opened. In 1988 Goldsmiths became a full School of the University of London and in 2004 we celebrated 100 years as part of the University.


UK requirements for international applications

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
