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

The transcript for each degree should list all modules taken and the grades achieved on each. Applicants who are still enrolled on a course should supply partial transcripts of the modules taken and grades achieved so far and should also supply a list of the modules that are currently being taken. Applicants who have not yet graduated should state the date when results are expected.
Please provide information on the research group you wish to join, information about your research experience and, for self-funded applicants, details of how you plan to fund yourself.
All research is funded by grant-awarding bodies, or you may be self-funded. If self-funded you will be expected to pay tuition and bench fees to the School and demonstrate that funding is guaranteed for the full tenure of the research programme. Grant-awarded funds are obtained following application by the research supervisor and sources include the MRC, Wellcome Trust, Biomedical Research Centre, and many charities.
