To apply for most of our postgraduate programmes at King's you will need to complete our postgraduate online application form. A minority of programmes have a different application procedure which will be outlined below. Applying online makes applying easier and quicker for you, and means we can receive your application faster and more securely.
King's does not normally accept paper copies of the postgraduate application form as applications must be made online. However, if you are unable to access the online postgraduate application form, please contact the relevant admissions/School Office at King's for advice.
If you have already applied to King's through our online application form you can check the status of your application by logging into myApplication myApplication
Applications should be submitted to both institutions, which will make admissions decisions jointly. Students may be interviewed on-site or by phone, depending on location. Interviews may be waived for those with undergraduate degrees from either institution.
The convenors will make all decisions on applications after the deadline has passed in early May 2013.
PERSONAL STATEMENT & SUPPORTING INFORMATION
You will need to provide a personal statement of around 500 words, outlining your reasons for wanting to take our MA, and your relevant experience. Convenors may request additional materials as needed.
All successful applicants to the Global, International & Comparative History MA will be considered for merit-based financial aid. This funding is limited and would, at most, involve a partial tuition fee waiver.
Awards will be made in consultation between the two History Departments and will be based on qualifications documented as part of the application process (for those spending their first year at King’s) and performance in the first year of study (for those spending their second year at King’s).
Various other forms of financial aid are also available at each institution. It is worth investigating the sources of funding described on the following web pages: Georgetown: http://finaid.georgetown.edu/grmenu.htm
