Announcement of results

To be considered for the award, applicants MUST, by the application deadline of 17:00GMT, 31st March 2014:
1) Have submitted a complete online admissions application (https://myapplication.kcl.ac.uk/).
Admissions applications must be ‘complete’ in order for an application to be considered for funding, and for an admissions application to be deemed ‘complete’ it must contain all the relevant supporting documentation, such as references, transcripts, and English language scores. It will be the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that all supporting materials are submitted to the College by the funding deadline of 31st March 2014, 17:00GMT. *
2) Submit a Graduate School PGT online funding form. Note that this online funding application form should only be completed once an admissions application has been submitted to the College. The online funding form can be accessed via the right hand link on this page.
*Students who have already applied for admissions, and those who hold a place but deferred entry to 2013/14, will not be required to submit an admissions application again.
Failure to submit both application forms, as appropriate, by the application deadline will result in the application being ineligible.
The Graduate School PGT online funding form will cover all the following schemes:
King's Alumni Scholarships (KAS)
King's Masters Scholarships (KMS)
King's International Masters Scholarships (KIMS)
King’s Santander Masters Scholarships (SANT-M)
Canadian Friends Award for Masters Students (CAN)
Friends of King’s College London Association Scholarship (USA)
Details about each of these schemes are provided within the PGT guidance document – see relevant pages as indicated in the content page.
Since the application covers a range of Graduate School PGT funding schemes, applicants will be asked to select the scheme(s) that they want to be considered for. Applicants may choose multiple schemes if they feel they are eligible for those schemes. Note that applicants must check their eligibility carefully before applying. Verification of eligibility will be conducted by the Graduate School Support team once the application deadline has passed.
Applicants only need to submit the PGT online funding form ONCE. Please refrain from submitting multiple PGT online funding applications to the Graduate School.
As part of the Graduate School PGT online funding form, applicants will be asked to provide:
Personal details i.e. name, admissions ID/reference number, date of birth and email address
Details about the postgraduate taught (PGT) programme
Details of academic history/qualifications and achievements
A statement of justification
Confirmation that they are seeking / have secured funds to cover any remaining fees/costs not covered by the Graduate School awards
Please note that, all eligible applicants who have applied appropriately for our PGT funding scheme(s) will be considered for the scholarship(s). Please be aware that, although it is not required, the expectation is that applicants should already hold an admission offer by the funding deadline of 31 March 2014.
Further information and queries
Confirmation of awards will come from the Graduate School Support Team, who will be responsible for issuing the formal studentship letters containing instructions about how the funds are paid.
All results will be announced via email in the first instance.
Candidates who are deemed ineligible for the above schemes will be informed about their ineligibility within 3 weeks from the application deadline.
