How to find your International Foundation pathway

Browse our pathways below to learn more about their academic content and your study options. We recommend that you choose a pathway that interests you, for which you will be qualified, and that leads to degrees you would like to study. You can find a list of degrees under the ‘Degree eligibility’ tab on each pathway page.

Some degrees are accessed via more than one pathway, whilst other degrees are only accessible via a single pathway. With this in mind, it is worth investigating the degrees on offer under each pathway to make sure the right options are open to you.

Please note: Business Management & Social Science, Computer Science & Maths, Maths & Business and Maths & Economics pathways are now closed for application after the 28 February deadline passed. Should places on these programmes become available we will update the website.

All other pathways remain open for application but may close at any time from 1 March 2023. King’s College London recommends applying as soon as possible if you want to secure a place on the International Foundation Programme for 2023.

It is advisable that students who receive an offer confirm this by accepting by 31 March 2023 in order to guarantee their place.
