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
Prior to formal application students develop a cogent research proposal in correspondence with the Director of Research, Professor McCarty. On his approval, formal application may proceed. A preliminary visit to the department in London is highly desirable but not required. Normally studies begin in the autumn semester. If advised to proceed, applications should be made by early January, particularly if funding is required. Admission to the PhD programme is initially for the MPhil, but we expect students to transfer to the PhD after an appropriate period, by agreement with their supervisor, the departmental Research Committee and the College.
