Applicant Information 2022

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             After 15 October, King's applicants for 2023 and 2024 entry will receive an email directing them to this page. If you are a current applicant, please add our email address to your safe senders list to ensure our emails to not land in your SPAM folder.  

Thank you for submitting a UCAS form and applying to King’s. Below and in the sub-pages of this section, you will find the information you need for the next stages in the application process. This Applicant Information section is now your main source of information until January. Please read the page and links extremely carefully (you'll see that there's a chronological order), bookmark it, and refer back to it regularly. It is essentially the Admissions Office notice board, and you will miss important and useful information and forms if you do not read it.

Current notes for applicants:

Welcome to the Applicant Information section!

We encourage you to help us to help you by:

  • Reading this section thoroughly to see if your question has already been answered.
  • Starting every email with your name (exactly as you wrote it on the UCAS form), course applied for (including 'Biological' or 'Physical' if Natural Sciences and UCAS number (10 digits, please write without the dashes).
  • Sending an email rather than phoning (we can answer your query more efficiently that way).

We don't want to discourage you from getting in touch if there is something that you need to know, but please bear in mind that time spent answering your queries is time not spent working on your applications and interview schedules. So reading through these pages thoroughly before emailing is always a good idea, as you may find the information you are looking for here. Many thanks!

The Application Process

Please ensure that you have read the 'Application Process' page thoroughly. It sets out the application process from beginning to end. It is also essential for all King's candidates to read the pre-interview notes carefully (you may be at a disadvantage if you do not read this page).

Please ensure that you are reading your emails at the email address that you wrote on your UCAS form. In particular, we sent you a very important email shortly after the 15 October deadline: King's College, Cambridge: important information for applicants. If you have not read that email carefully as we requested, you may be at a disadvantage.
