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
Studentships may be advertised in New Scientist Study

Please note that most funding bodies will only support home/EU fees. Self-funded applicants (through a personal scholarship or private means) should submit a prospective application using the College online application form. However it is recommended that self-funded applicants contact the Division and/or Research Section that they wish to apply to before making a formal application.
Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed by at least two academics from the Division. Proposed research projects must be approved by the School of Medicine Postgraduate Research Students Committee before an offer can be made (via the completion of a Project Approval Form).
Those applying for the joint PhD are encouraged to contact an academic at King's to develop research links with the partner institution.
PERSONAL STATEMENT & SUPPORTING INFORMATION
Please provide information on the research project you wish to undertake, your motivation to undertake postgraduate research and information about your research experience. If you are applying for a specific named project/studentship please include the reference number and project title.
Self-funded applicants should provide details of how you plan to fund your studies and state the supervisor(s) to whom you wish to apply.
A small number of studentships, for specific named projects, funded by external funding agencies such as the research councils (eg MRC), or charitable bodies are usually available (these are normally advertised on the College's website, and on http://www.findaphd.com
). These typically provide a stipend and the payment of tuition fees at the home/EU rate. Other than this, applicants will be expected to be self-funded through a personal scholarship or private means. If you are self-funded please contact the Division or Research Section that you wish to apply to before submitting an online application.
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 but it is recommended that you are in touch with the Division before submitting a formal application.
