Why might have my application to study at King’s been unsuccessful? 

Admission to a large majority of King's courses is highly competitive, and this means that unfortunately a large number of applicants, even those who meet or exceed the minimum entry requirements for consideration, will regrettably be unsuccessful each year. 


Am I eligible to submit an appeal?  

As stated within the Admissions Appeal Procedure this appeal procedure is only available to applicants whose application for admission to a programme of study is rejected by the university.


The following complaints will not be considered and will be rebuked:


Complaints made without foundation or in bad faith will not be considered. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Complaints which are obsessive, harassing, or repetitive.
  • Insistence on pursuing complaints without merit and/or unrealistic, unreasonable outcomes
  • Complaints which are designed to cause disruption or annoyance.


Reconsideration of an unsuccessful decision
  • This may include but is not limited to the request to review an unsuccessful decision based on competition or failure to demonstrate the meeting entry criteria. 
  • Unless substantive evidence is provided my the applicant that demonstrated there were irregularities in the admissions procedure, these complaints will be revoked. There is no provision for appeal against the academic or professional judgement of the KAO and admissions selectors.


Complaints regarding performance on Admissions Tests

As the administration of Admissions Tests is outside of the responsibilities of the KAO, these complaints will not be investigated.
