How the university evaluates applicants

The University of Goldsmith does not make admissions decisions conventionally because UCAS focuses on actual academic talents. However, it is still essential to describe every one of your skills because the institution uses a thorough approach to review applications for admission. You may occasionally be taking a combination of skills, such as two A-levels and one BTEC Level 3 or one A-level and a Cambridge Pre-U, and they encourage sensible combinations in this regard.

Tips for applying to the university

  • Students are urged to submit their applications using UCAS, an online application system accessible on the official university website, for a smooth application process to the university. This includes international students, and one can apply directly to the university through the portal by providing the UCAS institution code- G56 and the institution name GOLD.
  • Submit all necessary documents along with the previous academic transcripts. 
  • Pay the Application fees and save the receipt (non-refundable amount of 20-25 GBP). 
  • The university will get in touch with you within approximately two weeks.
