Study programmes

 King's College London welcomes undergraduate and postgraduate students currently enrolled in universities outside the UK to participate in our Study Abroad programmes.  Undergraduate students must be registered on a BA or BSc degree.  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.  Please note that exchange students are not permitted to study at King's in more than one academic year at the same level.

  • 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.  Students should note that application deadlines are earlier for independent students, and spaces are limited. Some departments modules are not open to fee-paying students, please see under Module Options.  Please note that fee-paying students are not permitted to study at King's in more than one academic year at the same level.

  • Students in their final year of degree programme should note that the schedule of release of transcripts for their semester/year at King's might mean you have to delay your graduation, depending on your home university schedule. No transcript can be provided early.

    We also work with two provider organisations: Arcadia and IFSA-Butler.
