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


Before applying please consult the department's web pages to determine if we have a suitable research supervisor for your project. You will need to submit a sample of your written work (in English or French) of no more than 5,000 words in length and a research proposal of up to two sides in length (plus bibliography) along with your application. Applicants will normally be interviewed by two members of the department's staff, one of whom will be your prospective supervisor. Admission to our research programmes will initially be for the MPhil but we expect students to transfer to the PhD after an appropriate period, by agreement with their supervisor and the Departmental Postgraduate Admissions and Research Committee.
