Those wishing to apply for the LLB English Law & American Law programme must apply through UCAS
for the Law LLB programme (M100) and then apply to transfer to the desired degree during the first year of the programme.
The standard three A-level offer for the LLB is A*AA. However, we wish to encourage applications from a wide variety of educational backgrounds and will consider candidates without the standard qualifications.
All applicants are required to take the National Admissions Test for Law (LNAT) by 15 January. Your application will be considered late if we have not received your results by that date. This applies to all home/EU and overseas applicants. However, for some overseas applicants dispensations may be granted on an individual basis only where there is no LNAT centre in the candidate's country or no centre within a reasonable distance from his or her residence. Please see the LNAT
website for further details.
Alongside your academic achievements, we also take into account your extracurricular activities as described in your personal statement. We look for applicants who have participated as fully as possible in school, college or community life, making the most of the opportunities available to them.
All applications are considered without interview with the exception of applicants with relevant life experience. In assessing applications from applicants with relevant life experience, we look for evidence of recent academic achievement and recent educational experience. Interviews are held in February and March. All applicants who receive an offer will be invited to attend an open day (usually in March or April).
Please refer to the UCAS website for application deadline dates, or contact the relevant Admissions Office for further advice.
If your course requires you to apply directly to King's, or through another alternative route, please refer to the selection procedure text and use the 'Apply' button to the left to access the application form/further details.
