SELECTION PROCEDURE (Department of French)
Most applications are considered between November and March, and suitably qualified applicants will be invited to attend an open day in the department. This will offer an opportunity not only to visit King’s, but also to discuss your aims and ambitions, and to discover whether King’s is the right place for you. You will also be able to participate in an informal seminar discussion with a member of staff, to give you a sense of how learning, teaching and research, the core activities of the department, work together.
Certain candidates, particularly those with relevant life experience or with special requirements and/or qualifications may be asked to attend an interview. This is a fairly relaxed affair. It is an opportunity, like the open day, for you to find out about King’s and whether it is the right place for you to study. Formal admission requirements may be flexible, but evidence of academic study in French is required.
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.
