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
On the online application form, please select "Social, Genetic & Developmental Psychiatry MSc (Full-time)" from the programme list. You are not required to fill in the Research Proposal box at this time. You MUST include the following in your application:
- Why you want to take the four-year interdisciplinary course at the SGDP
- Your research interests
- Whether you are eligible for a Research Council studentship. If you are only eligible for "fees-only support", it is still worth applying as the department sometimes has other forms of funding. Please clearly state your eligibility. The eligibility requirements are here: www.mrc.ac.uk/Fundingopportunities/Applicanthandbook/Studentships/Eligibility/index.htm
- Confirm that your two academic referees are aware that you are applying for a four-year interdisciplinary course which includes a taught MSc component in the first year. For those who are not eligible for an RC studentship, we will consider applications only if you are able to obtain funding in the form of fellowships or sponsorship from other funding bodies.
