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


An application fee of £40 applies (non-refundable). Selection is generally made on the basis of application and references. Your application will be assessed by two academics. You are welcome to contact the Programme Leader to arrange a site visit.


Please ensure you pay careful attention to the content of your personal statement. We do not normally invite applicants for interview and so the clarity and relevance of the information you provide in your personal statement is of considerable importance to us. In particular, we would like you to describe your academic background and any relevant clinical or research interests, your reasons for applying to our particular postgraduate programme and what you hope to gain from the training we offer, and how you intend to use the knowledge and skills you acquire to further your clinical or research ambitions.

Please upload your personal statement (word limit: 1000) during online application. If your personal statement does not exceed 4000 character spaces, you may also copy and paste in the space provided for ease of reference.
