Fees and funding
This programme is only available two years’ part-time. There is no full-time option. Fees are the same for home/EU and overseas students.
These tuition fees may be subject to additional increases in subsequent years of study, in line with King’s terms and conditions.
Students are generally self-funded. We regret that there are currently no forms of student subsidy or scholarship available for this programme.

Year 1: 2020/21 fee

All WSO Programmes and accreditation: King’s College London is the academic provider for the following courses taught at the Defence Academy at Shrivenham in the UK:
- Intermediate Officers Development 4/5 - (IOD 4/5)
- Intermediate Command and Staff Course - Land (ICSC(L))
If you passed ICSC(L) pre-September 2014 then there will be a requirement to submit a 4000-word essay due to a different programme structure at that time.
- Intermediate Command and Staff Course - Maritime (ICSC(M))
Graduates of these courses may be eligible for 20 credits to be applied to the War Studies Online programmes if the necessary conditions are met. If you are claiming this accreditation, you must email a copy of your certificate as evidence of passing, in an email to Menisha Gor the Programme Co-ordinator. This is to ensure the 20 credits are added to your student records and verified. This would also mean a reduced fee is applied for year 1 only associated with this accreditation. NOTE: the mark for the programme is not included in calculating the final MA award, only credits are used. You will therefore require only 160 further credits, meaning that you are required to take three option modules in place of the normal four.
No other forms of accreditation are applicable to War Studies Online programmes.
