Please note: all students must enrol on the AKC in their first year at King's in order to be able to complete the programme.
AKC enrolment for current King's staff

Members of staff should email the AKC Office in September 2023 to enrol on the programme. Please include your full name, title, and date of birth in your email so that we can create a student record for you.
Staff must follow the course for three years in order to obtain the AKC award.

AKC for Alumni
We are delighted to offer the AKC (Associateship of King’s College) to King’s alumni as a distance learning course.
Alumni who successfully complete three years of the AKC programme (the same regulations as for campus-based students) are eligible for election by the Academic Board, on behalf of the College Council, as Associates of King’s College.
How to apply
You can now apply for entry for the 2023/4 academic year. The deadline for applications for entry in October this year is 31 August 2023, although admissions may close before this date once all available places have been allocated. Please note: King’s College London only accepts applications submitted through the Admissions Portal.
You must be an alumnus of King’s (or from a College which has merged with King’s) and have completed an undergraduate or postgraduate qualification. Applicants will be required to upload a copy of their degree certificate or transcript as part of the application process.
As all course materials are delivered online, you are advised to only apply for this course if:
- For entry in 2023/4, the fees will be £600 per academic year (£1800 in total).
You will receive an invoice from Credit Control after you have enrolled at King's at the start of each academic year.

How to enrol

Accessing course materials
All course materials are accessed via KEATS: https://keats.kcl.ac.uk
You will be able to access KEATS after you have set up your King's IT account and course materials will be available to you once you have completed your enrolment on the AKC Programme.
As the AKC for Alumni is delivered entirely online, we do not expect students to need to visit the King's libraries in person; however, alumni library membership is available upon application. Please contact the Alumni Office in the first instance.
King's email accounts
During your time on the AKC programme, we will need to communicate with you about important things – for example, assessment information or your results.
Communications from the College will normally be by email and you are advised to check your King’s email account regularly.
The AKC team accept no responsibility if you do not receive essential information because you have not checked your King’s email account.
