Pre-sessional Entry Requirements
Academic entry requirements
You need to hold an offer to study on a King's degree.
English language entry requirements
Each Pre-sessional course has different entry requirements depending on the English language level needed by each academic department.
Please use our Pre-sessional English Calculator to find out which Pre-sessional course is right for you and the English language requirements for each department.
See our Pre-sessional entry requirements (IELTS) or Pre-sessional entry requirements (other) for more details.
If you do not know which faculty or department offers your degree, search for your course.
PLEASE NOTE: students who hold unconditional offers are welcome to register for our 6-week Pre-sessional or 6-week Combined Pre-sessional courses.
English language tests
If you need to apply for a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK, we can usually only accept results from a UKVI approved IELTS test with your application. However, if you are applying to our 6-week Pre-Sessional or our 6-week Combined Pre-Sessional courses, you may be eligible for an integrated Tier 4 visa, which allows us to accept a wider range of English language tests.
Please see below the list of accepted English language tests. Contact the Admissions team for further details.
We accept results from the following English language tests:
- Cambridge FCE
- Cambridge CAE
- Cambridge CPE
