Interviews in Cambridge

Interviews in Cambridge for students applying to King's in 2019 (for 2020 or deferred 2021 entry) will in most cases take place between 9-13 and 16-17 December 2019. This is the interview period for applicants invited for interview in Cambridge. These dates are provisional and we may invite applicants for interview in the preceding or the following week as well. This is why we advise applicants to keep 2-6, 9-13 and 16-17 December 2019 free in case you are called for interview in Cambridge.

If there is also a written assessment that you take at interview, or any other further elements mentioned in the applying section on the relevant subject page, these are normally scheduled on the same day as your interview(s) where possible.

We have provided below a provisional breakdown of which subjects we expect to interview on which dates. This gives you details of what we currently expect to happen and we hope that it will be helpful. However, do be aware that the dates below are only provisional and we may change them at an earlier or later date. If the dates for any individual subject change, they will still fall within the interview period.
