Visa information

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 academic preparation course. Students who progress to King's are also guaranteed accommodation for the first year of their degree.
