The information on this page should be read in combination with Engineering at King's and in particular the details of how to apply for Engineering at King's. Do bear in mind that the King's Engineering Seminar is only one element of the application process.
Candidates invited for Engineering or Chemical Engineering via Engineering interviews at King's have an 'Engineering Seminar' on the day of the interview. This consists of a short seminar with one of the Engineering academics at King's on an area of maths and/or physics which will be unfamiliar, followed by an opportunity to look through your notes and ask questions, and a written exercise based around the seminar material. It is addition to your interview and the Maths and Physics Test, to give you another opportunity to show what you can do (see What are we looking for?).
If we invite you for interview in Engineering or Chemical Engineering via Engineering, we will automatically organise this seminar for you as part of your interview day timetable - you do not need to register.
Beyond the preparation that you are already doing for your application, we do not expect you to do any specific preparation for the King's Engineering Seminar, so we do not provide a lot of detail in advance. We will explain clearly what you need to do at the beginning of the seminar and you will have the opportunity to ask questions. We want you to simply turn up and do your best. If you are looking for general maths and physics resources or events, please see the resources section on the King's Engineering page. A particularly useful website is www.i-want-to-study-engineering.org.
You will not have the King's Engineering Seminar if:
- you are not invited for interview.
- you are interviewed overseas rather than in Cambridge, UK.
If you normally receive extra time or other arrangements for exams that you sit at school, please read about applying with a disability, specific learning difficulty or long-term illness, which includes a step-by-step guide to the application process.
