Congratulations on getting an offer.

We are delighted to have been able to make you an offer to study your chosen subject at King's. Please read all of the information on this page and in the links very carefully and check them regularly for updates. The offer holders' checklist is especially important.

Current notes for offer holders

  • Contacting King's: If you have any questions or concerns at this stage, do remember that you can always send us an email. Please continue to start your emails with name, subject, and UCAS number throughout the time you are an offer-holder. Many thanks! Further detail about contacting King's.

Offer holders' checklist

The Offer holders' checklist page contains important information about what documents offer-holders need to send and the deadlines. Please ensure that you read it thoroughly.

Further help on what you need to do is also available:

Reading lists and preparation

In the Reading lists section, you will find reading and preparation information for each course (including websites, where appropriate, as well as books).

It is important to try and do as much of the recommended reading as possible before you arrive in Cambridge.

Information for freshers - accommodation, arriving etc.

Once you have met all the conditions of your offer (academic conditions, financial conditions, visa if relevant - see your offer letter and the checklist), the freshers' page is for students who have met all their offer conditions. It sets out the practical information about arriving at King's in October and joining the College.

Students with practical questions about living and studying at King's are advised to consult the current King's undergraduate information booklet and the University handbook in particular.

Changes to your contact details

It is essential that you remember to email us if any of the following details change:

  • your mailing address
  • your phone number
  • your email address

Please also update the information on UCAS Track, and ensure that you also record the new information on the King's offer reply form, if you've not already sent it in.

Email works best! Cred: M Aldridge

Please continue to write your name, subject (including 'Biological' or 'Physical' for Natural Sciences) and UCAS number on all correspondence with us.

For queries we prefer to be contacted by email in all cases:

The admissions staff also visit schools and are frequently away working with school groups from January to July. They can normally answer your emails wherever they are so it is definitely best to email rather than phone.

Unless otherwise specified, all documents in the offer holders' checklist should be sent to:

Undergraduate Admissions Office
King's College

Please remember to enclose a stamped, addressed postcard if you need confirmation of receipt.
