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 are normally considered within four to six weeks of receipt of references and written work. They are seen by at least two members of the teaching staff; candidates may be called for interview or (for overseas candidates) interviewed by phone or email.
PERSONAL STATEMENT & SUPPORTING INFORMATION
Please supply a personal statement, giving your reasons for applying and achievements to date. In the first sentence of your personal statement, please make clear which pathway you are applying for, Musicology or Composition.
Applications should be accompanied by a sample of appropriate and recent written work. Please note that there are different application procedures for Musicology and Composition pathways.
Applicants for the Musicology pathway should upload an undergraduate dissertation (if available) or two or three recent essays to the Admissions Portal. Your work should engage with the existing scholarly literature (so essays that are purely descriptive or technical are unlikely to be appropriate).
Applicants in Composition should send a portfolio of recent scores (in hard copy), accompanied by recordings of the works if available, by post to this address:
