Application Form


    This form is for distance learning courses only. King's Evangelical Divinity School does not offer residential programmes. Therefore, acceptance on a course will NOT secure a student visa from the UK Border Agency to study in the United Kingdom.



    1. Scans or electronic copies of any certificates and transcripts you plan to submit. Please note that evidence of previous studies is mandatory for all Graduate Diploma and M.A. applications. This form includes an upload feature to provide such documentation. If you cannot upload the files for whatever reason, or are awaiting transcripts from a previous institution, you may email scanned copies to the school separately at a later date.

    2. Any other documentation you wish to submit with your application (e.g. supporting letter from your named referee), which will speed up your application.

    3. A debit or credit card to pay the 35 GBP (approx 45 USD) application fee. Payment of the fee completes the application process.



    Complete all the boxes. An asterisk (*) denotes a box which cannot be left blank. The fuller your responses and the more information you supply, the less likely the need to get back to you for further information, which will delay your application. You might want to prepare the longer answers on a word processor beforehand and then copy and paste to the appropriate area. If an answer does not apply to you, type N/A (`Not Applicable'). Once completed, click the "Submit" button on the last page. Should you get a 'problem' message in red at this point, there are required item(s) you have not completed. Return and complete these items(s). You may use the "Previous" and "Next" buttons as many times as you like for this purpose and also to return to the last page to press the "Submit" button again.

    Once submitted, your application will reviewed by Faculty to determine suitability for the course for which you have applied. An application indicating a preferred start date over 90 days from the date of submission is held until three months before that date, after which it will be processed. Applications take between 10-21 days to process, depending on how quickly a reference is provided. Contact us if you did not received an automated acknowledgment within 24 hours of submitting your application. Please note that once an offer of admission is made, it must be taken up within 60 days.

    For undergraduate applicants, the nature of these studies requires a good grasp of English. Therefore, where English is not an applicant's native language, responses to the questions in this application form will help King's determine if an applicant satisfies this requirement, and for this reason it is important to supply detailed answers. You may also upload evidence of proficiency in English, for example, EFL scores, certificates, etc.
