Study in London
How to apply
King's College London welcomes students currently enrolled in universities outside the UK to participate in our Study Abroad programmes. You can apply for a full academic year(from September to June) or for one semester only (September-December or January-June). There are two ways in which you can study abroad at King’s:
As an exchange student: You can study abroad at King's as an exchange student only if an exchange agreement is in place between your home university and King's, including Erasmus+. Your home university needs to nominate you as part of their exchange quota. Please contact your International office to check their nomination procedure.
As an independent student: You can study abroad at King’s as an independent student. If you intend to participate in this programme, a tuition fee will be required, and you need to apply directly. Fee-paying students, where agreement is not in place between King’s and the home university should not nominate students as they apply directly.
We also work with two provider organisations: Arcadia and IFSA-Butler.
The King's College London Study Abroad programme allows students who are currently studying for their degree at an overseas institution to spend either a semester or a full year at King’s. They must have completed at least a full year of study before their study abroad at King's.

The Study Abroad Plus programme gives Study Abroad students the opportunity to experience the world-of-work in the buzzing capital by taking an accredited internship in the Liberal Arts and Cultural sector, as part of their studies at King’s College London. Students must secure their own internship.
Students on Study Abroad Plus secure and complete their own suitable internship placement with the support of Careers & Employability.
Study Abroad Plus is open to undergraduate students participating in the Study Abroad programme at King’s for either a full year or Spring semester (January-June). Support workshops start in September. Spring semester students who join in January can still take this module, though it is more ideal if an internship as already been secured, prior to arriving in London.
To be able to undertake an internship as part of your studies in the UK, students on this programme are required to have a Student Visa which is valid for the full duration of their stay in London.

Students interested in taking the module should submit an Expression of Interest form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
