King's welcomes students with a range of qualifications from all over the world.

Entry requirements vary for each course and are listed on the online prospectus.

Please make sure that you fulfil all the entrance requirements for the course to which you are applying, including English language requirements if relevant. Competition for places on some courses is extremely high and the typical entry requirement may not be sufficient to secure an offer. Please check the details and if you are unsure about what is required, contact the relevant office.

Depending on your subject, there may be additional requirements for entry. 

These could include:

  • Occupational health

  • Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks

  • Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) clearance. This applies to students who require entry clearance to study in the UK in certain science, engineering or technology subjects. See the Foreign & Commonwealth Office website for more information.
