International entry requirements

King's College London students in the Greenwood Theatre


King's welcomes applicants to our postgraduate taught and research courses from countries all over the world. The information below is intended to give general guidance to those considering applying for 2017 entry for postgraduate study at King's. 

Important notes

  • Exact entry requirements will vary by programme. Some programmes will specify grades required for entry along with compulsory subject areas, or state preferred subject areas. We have provided general guidance for programmes that ask for a Bachelors degree or Masters degree, but it is important that you also check our online prospectus for any non-academic entry requirements as well as for general application guidance.

  • To follow our programmes successfully, you must have a good command of English and be able to apply this in an academic environment. Therefore, you are usually required to provide evidence of your competence in English before starting your studies. Find out more about our English language requirements here

  • King's has a competitive application process for our courses: meeting the typical entry requirements alone will not guarantee that you will be successful in receiving an offer to study at King's, but we hope that you will consider applying.
