Unfortunately we are not always able to offer even academically strong applicants the course they initially applied for. In some of these cases we are able to identify another course at King’s that we believe they would be more suited to – perhaps based on interests raised in their personal statement, or the subjects they are currently studying. In this case, you would receive what we call an alternative offer, where we offer you a place on a course different from the one you originally applied to.
You can find out more information about the offered course by searching for it on our website, and we would recommend reading this information before responding to your offer. It is important to note that you will not be able to switch back to your original course after accepting an alternative offer, so you should only accept this offer if you are interested in the offered course.
There is a limited timeframe for you to accept the alternative offer, the deadline is indicated when you log in to UCAS Track and you can contact UCAS if you are unsure.
