Goldsmiths University of London has established the foreign Response Scholarship for the academic year 2024, a significant step toward supporting foreign students encountering obstacles because of their status.

This innovative program is intended especially for overseas students who are either in the process of applying for asylum in the UK or who currently possess refugee status. This fellowship, which aims to provide access to higher education for everybody, is a ray of hope for anybody hoping to enroll in Goldsmiths' undergraduate or graduate taught programs.

One notable feature of the International Response Scholarship is its extensive support portfolio. Worth a hefty £8,825 allowance, it pays for Goldsmiths' whole tuition and gives up to £200 a week for housing in the resident halls. There are four scholarships available in total this year, split equally between both undergraduate and graduate students to ensure a broad range of support.

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 Admissions, Widening Participation, and the Immigration Advisory Service. The panel will assess the applications against the stated criteria.

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