Each year, King's College admits between 130-135 undergraduates from a range of all the subjects offered at the University of Cambridge except Education, Land Economy and Veterinary Medicine. Overall, we are a medium-sized College housing around 430 undergraduates across all years.
The students at King's form a diverse, tolerant and informal community with students from many different educational, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. We actively encourage all prospective students regardless of their backgrounds to consider Cambridge and to think about applying here. When considering an application we are looking for academic promise and potential. All candidates are considered on an individual basis where we are careful to interpret their application in light of their personal and educational background.

Important changes to pre-registration required admissions assessment dates for 2022
Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing (CAAT) have made some changes to the registration deadlines and dates this year, for written assessments for which pre-registration is required. This impacts on those applying for Medicine (BMAT), Veterinary Medicine (NSAA), Computer Science (TMUA), Natural Sciences (NSAA), Engineering (ENGAA), Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology (NSAA) and Economics (TMUA). STEP and LNAT (which is administered by Pearson) are unaffected.
All applicants for courses with a CAAT administered assessment must be registered by no later than 30 September 2022. Late registration will not be possible and may result in the application being invalid. Applicants should speak to their school or college to ask if they can administer the assessment. If this is not possible, there are a number of open centres around the world. Please make contact as soon as possible in case the preferred centre is full.
The admissions assessments will take place earlier this year. BMAT and TMUA will take place on Tuesday 18 October 2022 and all other Cambridge admissions assessments (NSAA and ENGAA) will take place on Wednesday 19 October 2022.
