Applications must be made online using King’s online application portal apply.kcl.ac.uk and a non-refundable application fee of £70 applies.
To apply for most of our postgraduate programmes at King's you will need to complete our postgraduate online application form. A minority of programmes have a different application procedure which will be outlined below. Applying online makes applying easier and quicker for you, and means we can receive your application faster and more securely.
King's does not normally accept paper copies of the postgraduate application form as applications must be made online. However, if you are unable to access the online postgraduate application form, please contact the relevant admissions/School Office at King's for advice.
If you have already applied to King's through our online application form you can check the status of your application by logging into myApplication.
Completed applications (consisting of an online application form, both references, transcripts of previous qualifications and evidence of English Language score where required) will be considered on a "first come first served" basis according to the date of completion of the application. Early applications are strongly advised.
The initial decision will be to either confirm the offer of a place without an interview, invite you for an interview, hold your application for further consideration following the official closing date for applications, or to reject the application.
You should be expect to receive this initial decision within six weeks of the date of completion of the completed application, although this may be slightly longer at peak periods near to the closing date. Applicants who are offered a place will have to provide original documentary evidence of their previous qualifications, and pay a non-refundable deposit, before access to the online virtual learning environment will be given at the start of your course.
Our first deadline for applications is 23 October 2020 for January 2021 entry. After this date, the programme will remain open if places are available, and will be closed as soon as it is full, so we encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible. For programmes with spaces remaining, no further applications will be accepted after 23 November 2020.
Please note you will not be eligible for an application fee refund if you apply after the first application deadline and places are filled before the final deadline above and we are unable to process more offers.
