  • If you are an SC parent with a child who is an international student, your child may be considered for admission, if there are still vacancies in the MK after all SC and PR children have been admitted. You may contact your preferred MK directly to check on the available vacancies for 2024 K1/K2 admission. For 2025 K1 admission, you may contact your preferred MK directly from Sep 2024 onwards.
