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

PERSONAL STATEMENT & SUPPORTING INFORMATION
Please provide a description of the research project you wish to undertake, information on your previous research experience and, for self-funded applicants, details of how you plan to fund yourself. Applicants with personal funding should attach confirmation of this to the applications
A small number of studentships for specific named projects, funded by external funding agencies such as the Research Councils, charitable bodies or directly by the Institute, are usually available (see applications procedure for details). The studentships usually provide for a stipend and the payment of tuition fees at the home/EU rate. Other than this, the division does not directly fund studentships and other applicants will be expected to be self-funded through a personal scholarship or through private means. Some funding may be available through the Graduate School.
Named studentships will have a closing date stipulated on the advertisement. Self-funded students should apply at least three months before your proposed starting date.
