How to apply

When applications open you can apply by registering for a MyGoldsmiths online account. Prior to applications opening you will be sent a Personal Identification Number (PIN) and full instructions for setting up your account.

Once you've set up an account you can complete and submit a scholarship/bursary application online. Please use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox as your web browser when submitting your application.

If you require a PIN to create your MyGoldsmiths account and wish to apply for the scholarship, please email scholarships(@gold.ac.uk) no later than Wednesday 20 May 2020. Unfortunately, we can't accept any PIN requests after this time, so don't delay!

Selection process

Successful applicants will be selected on a competitive basis.

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

Applications will then 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.

The panel will consist of representatives from the Department of Educational Studies. The panel will assess the applications against the stated criteria.

Final award recipients and reserve candidates will be decided by the panel.

Any applicants who meet the eligibility criteria but aren't awarded the Care Leaver Scholarship will automatically be eligible for our Care Experienced Bursary.

Deadline

Application will close on 22 May 2020

"SI-UK has been a crucial part of my UK journey. They assisted me in obtaining my bachelor's degree in August 2019 and now, they've aided me in securing admission to a top design university in London for my master's. The counselors at SI-UK offer personalised support to each applicant, helping us in each and every step including the final stage of obtaining our CAS letter once we receive the offer."

"The entire team at SI-UK was incredibly supportive. They provided me with a list of universities to consider, and I ultimately chose Aston University. With their assistance, I applied and received an offer along with a £5000 scholarship. I am grateful to my counselor and the entire team for guiding me through the visa application process and every other aspect. Thank you, SI-UK, for helping me pursue my dream."

"Last year, I reached out to SI-UK, Jaipur for my Master’s journey, and it has been an incredibly fulfilling and successful experience. From guiding me through the application process to assisting with letters of recommendation and statement of purpose, and even following up with universities, SI-UK provided comprehensive support at every step of the journey. They went the extra mile, assisting with admissions, fee processing, accommodation arrangements, visa guidance, and coordination on medical checkups. I firmly believe that my admission to the University of Birmingham wouldn't have been possible without SI-UK. I highly recommend SI-UK to anyone seeking admission to a UK or Ireland university."

In September, I sought assistance from SI-UK for my studies in the UK, with a planned intake for January 2023. With the support of my counsellor who made exceptional efforts, I smoothly navigated the application process which culminated in the timely acquisition of my UK student visa hassle-free. I wholeheartedly endorse SI-UK to fellow students aiming to pursue their dreams of studying in the UK. Thank you!
