We advise all students to apply before the end of July (for September entry) or the end of October (for January entry) to leave enough time to apply for visas and accommodation. Students are also required to pay their deposit by July/November to guarantee their place on the programme. We will consider applications after this date if we have any places still available.
We understand that, for some students, the July deadline is not possible if they have yet to graduate from University. We will make individual arrangements with you if this applies to you. If you have any questions then just call us.
We aim to assess and respond to your application within two weeks.
Not normally as we have maximum numbers on our optional modules. Therefore, please be sure that you have chosen the optional module which is right for you.
The pre-masters programme does not guarantee entry into King’s but you can obviously still apply for master’s programmes at King’s. If you want a guaranteed conditional offer then look at our Two-Year International Master’s Programmes.
Students should only pay their reservation fee once they have met all conditions of their offer. Places cannot be reserved until all conditions have been met and payment made.
Please note that your deposit is non-refundable as it is used to secure your place on a limited entry programme. The only exception to this is if your visa is rejected and you provide documentary evidence of this. The balance of your fees is payable by 31 October 2013 for September 2013 entry students and 31 January 2014 for January 2014 entry students, and you will be financially liable even if you decide to withdraw from the programme before then. No refunds are possible once you have enrolled for the programme.
Please therefore ensure that this is the correct programme for you and contact us if you have any questions. We want you to be confident that you have joined the correct programme before you pay your deposit and balance. We also repeat this policy on our application form to ensure you have understood it fully.
The IPP is a full-time, intensive course and we would recommend that students focus on their studies. If you do wish to work part-time then you will need to ensure that any job is outside of your daytime study and that your visa allows you to undertake part-time work.
The maximum class size is 18 although our average class size is 14.
Timetables vary from term to term but you can expect around 17-20 hours per week of contact study. You will also be expected to do the same amount of self-study each week and to use free time between modules to work in the library or the open learning centre. You can see a sample timetable on the programme content page.
