Once you have chosen the pathway you will be qualified to study and that leads to degrees you want to pursue then you are ready to apply for your International Foundation Programme.
We recommend that you apply as soon as possible after applications open in October. Applications should close at the end of February but if a pathway is full we will close applications for that pathway early.
To apply you need to:
- register on the King's Apply Portal
- select the pathway for which you want to apply
- select your study mode - Extended, Blended, Extended Blended or Standard
- complete our online application form
You can only submit one application to one International Foundation course. Please do not submit more applications as these will be rejected and cause a delay in your admissions process.
**We highly recommend that you submit your application as soon as possible, and King’s reserves the right to close pathways once they reach capacity, even if this is prior to the Priority deadline.**

Supporting documents for online application
You are required to apply online and upload your application documents to our portal. You can start your application and add to it as you gather your documents, your application will not be considered until everything has been submitted. Complete applications will be considered if received by 29 February 2024, unless a pathway has closed early due to the volume of applications received. Any application submitted after 29 February will only be considered if there is space on the particular pathway. It is your responsibility to check your application on King's Apply and respond to queries for further information. Our guidance notes will help with your application.
This is your opportunity to tell us why you wish to study at King's and what degree programme you hope to study after your foundation. You can see which degrees are available to you via pathway under the ‘Degree eligibility’ tab on each pathway. Please include information on how you feel the course you have chosen will benefit you, what you feel you can bring to King's as a student, and the area of study you intend to progress to after completing your Foundation course.
Please write a minimum of four paragraphs.
If the pathway for which you are applying does not allow for progression to the degree indicated in the personal statement, we will need to query this. Until this is rectified your application will be deemed incomplete.
You need to submit an academic transcript with your marks for Years 10, 11 and 12. If you are still completing high school then you should provide a Year 12 interim transcript with a full list of the subjects studied in the final year, as well as the academic transcript with final marks for Years 10 and 11.
If you have completed high school, you should provide a copy of your graduation diploma or certificate, as well as your academic transcript with final marks for Years 10, 11 and 12.
Official translations are required for any documents that are not in English. An official translation is either:
• from the school, on headed paper and stamped/signed, or
• from a certified translator.
We cannot accept documents translated by the applicant.
If you are taking A-levels or the IB Diploma, you should provide your predicted grades.
If you are taking AS levels, you should provide predicted grades and information on the exam board that will issue your certificate. Please note that we cannot consider AS level results issued at school level. If the exam board is not specified, then your application will be considered incomplete.
You must submit an approved English language test certificate, such as an IELTS for UKVI, which must be dated within the last two years. If you have not taken one yet, you can still apply and if we make you an offer this will form part of the offer conditions.
Visa regulations for entry into the UK have changed recently and we recommend you leave enough time to apply for your visa as applications are taking longer to process than normal. For more information on the new visa system, please see our visa information page.
We understand that the new visa system may be confusing so, if you need any further advice on applying for your visa, please contact one of our Student Advice team.
Students who apply for accommodation by the specified deadline are guaranteed a place in King's accommodation for the duration of their King's International Foundation programme.
Details of location and the facilities offered will be sent to you with the offer of a place on the course. Please see the Undergraduate Accommodation page for further details.
