The Centre for Doctoral Studies extended the thesis submission deadline for all students (who enrolled prior to April 2020) by 3 months. If the 'COVID Expiry Date Extension' to your expected/required thesis submission deadline is going to occur in the academic session 2023/24, it follows that your tuition fee liability will be adjusted so that you are not charged tuition fees during the 3 months extension period.
Repeating a year
If you are repeating a year of study due to re-assessment or deferred assessment
Goods and Services Tax
King's College London may be required to add Goods and Services tax (GST) on top of certain programme fees where students study on courses outside of the UK and where the country of study requires tax to be added to fees.
The UK Government does not require us to levy GST taxes (in the UK's case VAT) on students studying credit bearing courses in the UK, but this is not the case in all overseas tax jurisdictions.
If you are expecting a reduction in your fee in 2023-24, you will be notified of the amount when you are invited to re-enrol in August 2023.
UK/EU Undergraduate and PGCE tuition fees are subject to control by the UK Government. Annual increases are determined after consideration of a number of factors including; changes to OfS (Office for Students) funding, the competitive environment and the expected impact of inflation on the cost base of the university. Increases for returning students (overseas undergraduate, all postgraduate and all research students) are currently capped at 5% and this information was provided to you in the offer letter sent to you by the Admissions Office.
