Hi Delia,

Yes I am! I am really counting on the university accomodation as I don’t think I could afford something more expensive than £180 a week

Hey there,

London isn't the cheapest, but I think our campus combines being fairly central and fun with being affordable. We probably do offer accommodation within your budget. You can see the different types of accommodation we offer here. https://www.gold.ac.uk/accommodation/halls/

Aside from that, we have a really good reputation for Media and Comms!

If you have any other queries, please get in touch.

Hi Hanna,

Really encouraged that we have more applicants from continental Europe!

What area of art history interests you? Aside from being an artistic environment in general, we are very much into modern and contemporary art at Goldsmiths.

Hi! I recently started doing research on different aspects of modern art (and artists, I am now reading all about Americans and fell in love with Andrew Wyeth). I love reading about history of art in general, from ancient times to contemporary art, due to the fact that the changes and influences are incredibly interesting, but I’ve realised that my understanding of contemporary et is still to be developed and I want to focus on that HOPEFULLY (haha) at Goldsmiths. I cannot indicate which area of art is the closest to my heart, but I do believe that Uni will enable me to narrow my interests. Besides, London is such an amazing place to study art related course!

That's great to hear!

I think one of the appealing things about this area is how creative it is. We now have our own public art gallery that opened about a month ago and there are a number of other independent art galleries in the area.

Furthermore, and partly because of Goldsmiths' strong tradition in the arts, there are many creative studios around here.

Your other choices look stellar too, though as you say there are specific advantages to being in London.

You should come and visit if you get the chance!

Hi Hannah,

There can't be that many universities that combine art and psychology, it's pretty niche!

Some of the research that is coming out of this area is really exciting. Are you coming to this from a background in psychology or the arts?

Hey there,

Thank you for applying!

I don't think we send out acknowledgement emails, but you can see the status of your application on UCAS track.

We normally aim to respond to applications within 4 weeks. If you still haven't heard back after that, feel free to DM me for an update.

Good luck!

Hi Hannah,

Excellent, so you should have some background skills in psychology and statistics, which will be useful.

You may also find some handy information here. https://www.gold.ac.uk/pg/apply/personal-statements/

Good luck!
