How the University Evaluates Applicants

Although some of our highly competitive postgraduate teaching programmes operate a "gathered field" approach for applicants who match the advertised entry standards, it may take longer. King's attempts to make judgments on applications within 4–8 weeks. The main aspects focused upon are the student's previous academic performance and overall achievements.
