City University London To Kings College
Transferring to King’s
Some of our academic departments may consider transfer applications to our undergraduate courses from suitably qualified students currently attending other universities.
However, some courses may be unable to consider transfers. Please see below for further guidance.
Please note: It is not possible to transfer to the final year of any undergraduate course.
Thinking of transferring?
Transferring to another institution is a big decision. Before you consider submitting any applications for transfer, ensure that you discuss your situation with your current university personal tutor, academic support services, or welfare support services: they may be able to offer advice, guidance, or options to address your circumstances.
You may also want to discuss with them the impact a transfer of institution may have on your current funding, visa or accommodation arrangements.
Implications of transferring
If your application is successful you will receive a formal offer through UCAS which you can choose to accept or not. Think carefully about the following, and contact the Admissions Office before accepting any offer if you have any questions:
- Take note of the regulations regarding transfer on to a course at King’s from studies elsewhere, including how your final degree classification will be calculated. These can be found in Section 6 of the A2 Regulations for Admission and Registration and Section 11.4 of the A3 Regulations for Taught Programmes) in our Policy Zone.
- The Tier 4 visa for study in the UK is specific to each university. Therefore, if you require a Tier 4 visa it is likely that you will need to make a new visa application. In these cases King’s will provide you with a new CAS number if your transfer application is successful.
- You should also consider how a transfer might affect your funding or scholarship eligibility: our Funding Office can assist you with these matters.
- If you currently have a disability support plan in place, or think you may need advice or guidance on the support available if you transfer your studies to King’s, see our guidance for Disabled applicants.
Courses which will not consider transfer applications
Unfortunately we are unable to accept applications for transfer onto any year of the following programmes. Alternative ways to study on these programmes include applying for standard Year 1 September entry through UCAS or for Physiotherapy applicants the graduate entry route.
