I’m about to start an undergraduate course
Unfortunately, we’re not able to approve any programme changes at this stage, and so you should make sure you enrol onto the course that are holding an offer for.

Once you have started your programme of study, if you find that you would like to pursue transferring to a different course, you should speak to your personal tutor.
Important to know:
  • You would need to meet the entry requirements of the new course.
  • There is no guarantee that any change of your programme will be approved.

If you would like to explore transferring, please read our article How can I transfer course? for more information.

Important to know:
  • There is a short window of time where you may be able to transfer without being liable for fees for the course you were originally offered a place for. If you transfer after this time – around week 2 of term for most courses – you may be liable for these fees.
  • If changing courses is something you are considering, we strongly recommend contacting Student Advice & Guidance before proceeding, to assess and discuss any visa or financial implications which may impact you.

I’m about to start a postgraduate course
For postgraduate courses we may be able to offer a bit more flexibility around transferring courses, although you will still need to meet the entry requirements to be considered. Please check our prospectus for these entry requirements. The process around this depends on your enrolment status.

If you are an offer holder but not yet completed your enrolment:
Please contact King’s Apply and the Admissions team can find out if there are still spaces on your chosen course. September is a very busy time for all departments, especially Admissions, so we ask for your patience when awaiting a response. Admissions will look into this for you; if you meet the entry requirements, there is space and the course tutor is happy to accept you, this should be possible.

If you have already fully enrolled onto your course:
If you’ve fully enrolled onto the course for which you were originally offered a place but now wish to change, please get in touch with your department or faculty about the possibility of changing courses at this stage.

Important to know:
  • We advise reading our article How can I transfer course? for further guidance.
  • Whether you have completed your enrolment yet or not, we strongly recommend contacting Student Advice & Guidance before proceeding, to assess and discuss any visa or financial implications which may impact you.
