Goldsmiths University of London IELTS Requirement

If English isn’t your first language, you will need to meet our English language requirements to study with us. These are listed on our online prospectus pages. Your English language qualifications should be less than two years old at the time you start your studies with us.

IELTS

We prefer IELTS because it shows us which areas of your English might need to be improved. However, we also accept a range of other English language qualifications for degree level study.

Other qualifications

As well as IELTS, we accept a range of other English language qualifications for degree level study. If your qualification is listed then you will not need to submit an IELTS test score. If your qualification isn’t listed, please contact admissions@gold.ac.uk.

Help with English language

If you need additional help to reach our English language requirements then we offer courses which can help. These include Pre-sessional English Language courses, to improve your standard of English in time for your main course of study with us. We also offer International Pathways, which can help prepare you for degree level study at Goldsmiths or another UK institution.

In addition to IELTS we also accept the following qualifications for study at degree level or above as proof of English language capability.

Students who hold the following qualifications at the right level will not need to submit an IELTS test score.

If your qualification isn’t listed, please contact admissions@gold.ac.uk.

Please note that we do not currently accept the TOEFL test.
