What can I study?

King's welcomes students currently enrolled in universities outside the UK to participate in one of our Study Abroad programmes. You can study abroad at King's College London either as an exchange* student - through one of our exchange partner universities - or as an independent student, for which a tuition fee is required. We also work with three provider organisations: Arcadia, IFSA-Butler and ISA. You can apply for the full academic year (from September to June) or for one semester only (either September-December or January-June).

*You can study abroad at King's as an exchange student only if an exchange agreement is in place between your home university and King's and if your home university chooses to nominate you as part of their exchange quota.
