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.
