Read your offer letter carefully. If there is anything you don't understand or want to question, please contact the Admissions Office through your King's Apply account.
You then need to decide whether or not you wish to accept the offer from King's. The UCAS system allows you to respond to an offer in three ways:
For a detailed explanation of these responses, and deadlines to respond, see UCAS guidance here.
In your UCAS Track account you will be able to see the deadline for responding to your offer.
If you decide to accept an offer from King's, in the spring and summer you will receive details of offer-holder webpages and events to help you make your decisions and prepare for your start at King’s.
You will also have received an Offer booklet by post with your offer letter - you should read this carefully to understand your next steps especially those concerning student finance, visa applications, accommodation and conditional offers.
You can continue to contact the Admissions Office with any queries though King's Apply.
Unfortunately we are not always able to offer even academically strong applicants the course they initially applied for. In some of these cases we are able to identify another course at King’s that we believe they would be more suited to – perhaps based on interests raised in their personal statement, or the subjects they are currently studying. In this case, you would receive what we call an alternative offer, where we offer you a place on a course different from the one you originally applied to.
You can find out more information about the offered course on our online prospectus and we would recommend reading this information before responding to your offer. It is important to note that you will not be able to switch back to your original course after accepting an alternative offer, so you should only accept this offer if you are interested in the offered course.
Your offer letter will tell you whether or not you will need to pay a deposit and by when.
Please note that at undergraduate level deposits are usually only required for Overseas fee-paying offer-holders, and only once you have accepted King's as your 'Firm' choice. Any deposit will go towards your first year tuition fees. The Admissions Office will give send you information about how to pay, and your deadlines.
Of course! Offer holders will be sent details of our offer-holder open days and other useful information.
