Subjects

King's accepts applicants for all subjects except Veterinary Science, Land Economy and Education. In most subjects there are a number of very different 'routes' you can pursue through the course and papers that can be taken in related subjects. Some students change subject between 'Part I' and 'Part II' of their degree.
 


 

Choosing Your Subject

If you come to the College we expect you to work hard and will help you to succeed, but we also hope you will enjoy it. The results can be exhilarating. To get the most out of your time at King's, it is important to apply for a course that will really suit your interests.
