Undergraduate tuition fees
Home fees for students based in the UK are set at £9,250 per annum for new students starting in September 2022.
International tuition fees can be found on the online prospectus.
Important to know: All tuition fees may be subject to additional increases in subsequent years of study, in line with King’s terms and conditions.
Student loans & grants for Home students
The student support package offered by the government is available to most full-time, home, undergraduate, first degree students.
The main student finance package includes:
Maintenance loans and grants help with living costs (e.g. accommodation, books, bills). The Student Finance Calculator will let you calculate the amount of maintenance loan you're likely to receive.
You have to pay back loans but you don’t need to pay back grants.
You may also be eligible for extra help on top of this, e.g. if you study abroad.
When will I receive my student finance from Student Finance England or another UK funder?
Whether you are a new student or continuing on your course, you will not receive your student finance until the term starts and the Student Funding Office has confirmed your (re-) enrolment on the course to your funding body, once they can see that you are eligible for student finance.
Important to know:
- Term dates do not include Welcome Weeks. In the 2022-23 academic year, most programmes start on 26 September 2022, though some health-related and medical programmes may have an earlier start date.
- If you don't receive your funding within 2 weeks of the start of term, please check your funding has been finalised by your funder and that you have fully completed enrolment or re-enrolment.
- If these steps are complete, please email the Student Funding Office to check your attendance has been confirmed.
Funding from the USA
Can I use Federal Student Aid to fund my studies at King's?
Federal Direct Loans are provided by the US government and are available to US citizens and eligible non-citizens.
King’s College London’s Student Funding Office administers and processes all loans on behalf of eligible students. Students can use Federal Student Aid to fund their studies at King's.
For full information and detail about eligibility and the application process for Federal Student Aid at King's, please visit United States Student Loans 2022-23.
Can I use Federal Student Aid to fund a distance learning course at King's?
If you are studying a distance learning course, or any part of your course is delivered online, then you will not be eligible for US Federal Aid.
In these circumstances, students might be able to seek private study loans in the US to cover the costs of tuition and living costs.
If you’re unsure or have further questions on this, please contact the Student Funding Office.
Can I use my GI Bill benefits to study at King’s?
Students can use their Post 911/GI Bill benefits to study at King’s. You can find more information by visiting US Veterans Affairs (VA) Benefits 2022-23.
You can find out if the course you wish to study has been approved for VA Benefits online by visiting the US Department for Veterans Affairs. If it has not, please let us know and we will contact the VA and request that the course be approved.
Important to know: Except for PhD programmes, distance-learning programmes cannot be approved for VA Benefits. While the GI Bill can be used to cover correspondence courses in the US, our distance learning programmes do not meet the VA’s accreditation requirements.
What happens if I’m using my GI Bill benefits to pay for my course?
- We will need you to provide your Certificate of Eligibility with details of your entitlement, and your Social Security Number.
- Once you have enrolled in September, we will submit a notification to the VA confirming your enrolment and providing details of your tuition fees.
- Due to the GI Bill fee cap and fluctuations in exchange rate, your GI Bill payments may be more or less than your total tuition fee amount. Credit Control will contact you to arrange payment of any shortfall, or to arrange a refund where the amount received exceeds your fees.
Important to know: If your registration status changes during your course, please contact us as soon as possible so we can notify the VA and prevent any overpayment of benefits.
Key questions about funding
Our web pages provide information on these topics:
I have a student loan and have transferred to King's from another institution, what should I do?
Before starting at King’s
If your Student Finance application was for a different institution and you are yet to start your course at King's, you can let Student Finance know that you have changed your course or university using your Student finance login.
Already started at King’s
If your course has begun, you can’t update Student Finance about this change and instead, King's will need to submit a change of circumstance notification to Student Finance to let them know you have transferred to us.
Please contact us at Student Funding: Contact us to do this. The transfer of your application to King's will be subject to processing times and this can delay the funding being released into your bank account, so please let them know as soon as possible, and also whether this will cause you difficulties with key expenses, such as rent.
