    I'm looking to apply for biomedical sciences at King's, however I'm going to take a gap year. What are King's views on gap years?

    Hi there,

    Thanks for your question and interest in King’s College.

    It’s quite common for students to take a break after they finish secondary education. King’s is happy to consider you if you wish to take a year out to gain some specific experience, earn funds in preparation for your studies or generally broaden your interests.

    If you apply in the final year of secondary or further education, you can indicate in your UCAS application that you will be deferring entry and outlining your general plans in your personal statement.

    You are also welcome to apply to King’s towards the beginning of your gap year after completing your qualifications.

    Hope that helps and all the best with your studies!
