Direct enrollment vs. study abroad provider

You can choose to either apply directly through the university for admission, or apply through one of the following study abroad providers: Arcadia Global Studies or IFSA.

Applying through a study abroad provider still allows you to directly enroll at the university, but with an additional level of services and support. Because of these additional services, it often costs more to study abroad through a provider than to apply directly through the university. We encourage you to research both options before making a decision. If you have any questions, contact a study abroad adviser.

Additional Application Notes

If you are considering directly applying to King's College or going through a provider, apply as early as possible. The number of applicants for studying abroad there has increased in recent years, and admission is not guaranteed. King's College rolling admission prioritizes those students who apply early. It is also recommended to have a back up choice if applying to King's College, in case you do not get in.

Admission for fee-paying students has been consolidated to a single month. Students wishing to apply for a:

  • September start, students will need to apply in February.
  • January start, students will need to apply in September.
