Goldsmiths International Postgraduate Scholarship

Ruth, MSc Music, Mind & Brain student

 "Goldsmiths offered the perfect combination for me: a chance to experience life in London while gaining a degree in a discipline I’m passionate about, supervised some of the best researchers in the field. Another reason I chose to attend Goldsmiths was the International Postgraduate Scholarship I was offered. When applying for funding, the lack of postgraduate scholarships for international students surprised me, but I discovered
that Goldsmiths offered a number of international scholarships. My postgraduate bursary has helped make my experience at Goldsmiths possible, and I was honoured to have received the award."
