You should have (or expect to be awarded) an undergraduate degree of at least upper second class standard.
You might also be considered for some programmes if you aren’t a graduate or your degree is in an unrelated field, but have relevant experience and can show that you have the ability to work at postgraduate level.
No prior knowledge of linguistics is required. If you would like to explore the options, given your personal background, please get in touch.

Currently I am a postgraduate student at Goldsmiths. I am in the MA in Applied Lingustics: Sociocultural Approaches Programme. Being an international student at Goldsmiths has been and continues to be one of the best experiences of my life. Goldsmiths’ smaller College population in comparison to other Colleges at the University of London makes it easier to connect with people and develop friendships. Furthermore, my class size (there are seven of us in the Applied Linguistics programme) has made one-on-one interactions with tutors feasible and has helped a great deal in absorbing the taught material. Moving abroad to begin postgrad studies has not been without its difficulties, but Goldsmiths staff have been very helpful in the transition process. I appreciated the range of social events the International Office planned the first week for international students, and the meeting that was held giving us full detailed information on a range of international student issues. I feel very blessed to be at a College that has a solid academic reputation, respects individuality, and genuinely cares for and looks after its students.
