Intercollegiate student information
Intercollegiate modules at King's
The Department of Philosophy at King's welcomes applications from intercollegiate students wishing to take one of our modules for credit.
We accept students from University College London and Birkbeck, University of London.
How it works
If you wish to register on a King’s module you need to discuss your module choices first with your personal tutor and programme co-ordinator at your home institution. You will need formal approval in writing from your home institution before formally requesting to join a module at King's. Students cannot approach individual lecturers to ask if they can register for their module.
You can find descriptions of the modules on the module webpages. Generally Level 4 modules are for first year students, Level 5 for second year students and Level 6 are for final year students.
You can see when and where the modules take place in our timetables. These are made available in mid-August for the following academic year. NB: King's term dates may be different from your home institution.
Once you have decided what you wish to do, and have gained approval, you should download the Intercollegiate Registration Form (IRF1) and complete the form electronically.
When you have completed the form:
- For UCL students, you should submit the form to the UCL Philosophy Departmental Tutor for approval and signature. They will sign the form and forward to firstname.lastname@example.org
- For Birkbeck students, you should submit the form to the Birkbeck BA tutor for approval and signature. They will sign the form and forward to email@example.com
Please note that places on our modules are sometimes limited, and places will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis. If you apply to join a module that is full, you will be placed on a waiting list and we will contact you if and when a place becomes available.
After acceptance onto a module
If your application is successful, we will send your form to King's Registry Services team, who will create a record for you on the student database. Once Registry Services has generated your record, you will be issued with a King’s College London (@kcl.ac.uk) email address, which you are advised to check regularly, and a student ID card for King’s.
*Please follow enrolment and registration instructions from Registry Services carefully.*
