Supporting documents for online application
Your online application requires you to upload documents to our portal. You do not need all of these immediately, but your application will not be complete without them. See our guidance notes (pdf 954kb) for help with your application.English language certificate
You must submit an approved English language test certificate, such as an IELTS for UKVI, which must be dated within the last two years. If you have not taken an approved test, then we are unable to consider you for our Pre-sessional courses as they are a compulsory requirement.
Official offer letter
If you are holding an offer of study at King’s, then you do not need to attach your letter. However, without an offer for your main course of study, we will not be able to process your Pre-sessional application.
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.
Your local Consulate will be able to advise you as to the average time visa applications take in your country so please check this with them to determine when you need to apply to a Pre-sessional course.
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.
