Additional details about application process

Successful applicants will be selected on a competitive basis.

Initial shortlisting by eligibility criteria will be completed by the Goldsmiths Scholarships Co-ordinator. All applicants who meet the eligibility criteria are then forwarded to the next selection stage.

All applications which meet the eligibility criteria will be shortlisted and be considered by an awarding panel. All panel members understand that applicants will have a broad range of differing skills, attributes and experiences, so they will give equal consideration to both the applicant’s academic record and their answers to the questions posed in the award application form. Panel members also understand that what is important is the content of the answers and their relevance to the questions, not the standard of writing.

Is this opportunity available for individuals outside of the UK?
