1st class or 2:1 undergraduate degree (or the equivalent from an overseas university).
We may consider candidates with a lower second class degree or with professional qualifications from a recognised institution if they can:
show relevant work experience and/or relevant professional qualifications,
demonstrate that they are highly motivated
provide referees from their university or employment strongly supporting their admission onto a masters level programme.
In these circumstances we will usually admit a student to our certificate or diploma programmes, possibly with a view to the student transferring to the master's programme if they successfully pass their first two examined subjects. Relevant professional qualifications will be taken into account. Holders of the Diploma in Geriatric Medicine (DGM), Royal College of Physicians are exempt from 60 credits, and may therefore fast track and omit one-third of the MSc.
If you believe you are eligible for the credit exemption, please notify the Admissions Team via your King’s Apply account and provide a copy of your Diploma.
Your application will be assessed by the Admissions Tutor. You may be invited to be interviewed. We may interview non-UK candidates by telephone and may ask applicants to write an essay. We will only assess complete applications with supporting uploaded documents. Please see our website for more details. We aim to process all complete applications within four weeks; during February and March and over holiday periods, applications may take longer to process.
Personal statement and supporting information
The personal statement should be approximately three to four paragraphs, and no more than one page. This should explain why you are interested in the programme applied for, and could include, for example, details of your motivation and aptitude, your relevant experience and skills, and any other information that would be useful for us in assessing your application. In general terms, we look for candidates who demonstrate a strong interest in the programme, are committed to academic study at postgraduate level, and demonstrate the potential to do well in an academic environment.
