Timeline panel


Step 1

Decide which undergraduate degree programme you wish to study. Check which IFP programme you need to join in order to progress to your chosen degree - an autumn start, a spring start, or either. 


Step 2

Complete our online application. You will need to provide a copy of your most recent school transcript, a personal statement and proof of your English language level if required. Don't forget to tell us which degree you are applying for too.


Step 3

We'll assess your application. We may need more information from you so remember to check your applicant portal regularly. If you are under 18, we may ask you to take part in a Skype interview to find out more about you and your academic background.


Step 4

If your application meets our requirements, we will make you a conditional offer – for example we may require you to achieve certain grades in your exams. Once you have a conditional offer you can apply for accommodation on campus.  


Step 5

Once you have met the conditions of your offer and let us know, we will make your offer unconditional. 


Step 6

Once you have an unconditional offer, you can accept it via your applicant portal. Get ready to head to Kent to begin your studies.
