Kingston University is based in London in England. It is a modern university but its roots can be traced back to 1899 when Kingston Technical Institute opened. Today, Kingston University is one of the top choices of local and international students, this is mostly due its outstanding courses. The university has 4 modern campuses and is in close proximity to amazing entertainment, shopping and food places, making it the perfect location. Besides offering great courses in all fields of knowledge, the university is known for its fantastic extracurricular activities and social events. Life at KU is never dull- there are many student clubs, societies, sports, leisure activities, as well as student union events. The university also encourages students to take in volunteering opportunities, which also shows how sociable and conscientious KU students are. Speaking of- today, about 17,500 students are enrolled in academic programmes at Kingston University, 2,892 of them being international students from over 140 countries, including Afghanistan and Zimbabwe. As you can see, the university offers a multicultural, multinational learning environment, which is perfect to prepare the student for the smooth start of their global career. Kingston University graduates are well-developed when they graduate, because of the school’s great internship and work experience programmes. Those can be undertaken in London, the UK in general or throughout the world, at one of the many of KU’s industry / business partners. Students can basically study or work almost anywhere in the world and benefit from a tuition fee reduction or bursary or grant. The faculty body is made up of 2,108 scholars who are eager to pass on their knowledge in a fun and engaging way of teaching. The learning and teaching methods are inventive, and the teachers are truly passionate about their chosen subjects. They want to make sure that each student reaches his or her full academical potential and their academic goals.

    The overall environment

    The University is great with providing the required resources to help with different courses, for me personally i like the cyber lab and the library as they have a nice relaxing environment to study in.You can either study in groups , alone in a quite area or you can even book a whole room for group studies to fit different styles of studies and research.

    Inclusive, Supportive, Professional and FUN!

    Upon enrolment at Kingston University I instantly knew I was going to fit in – it’s hard not to! It’s such a friendly and diverse University overall – across all of their four campuses. You instantly are welcomed to the community throughout an amazing week of freshers activities and workshops. My journey throughout my past two years at Kingston has been nothing short of amazing. I have succeeded in my studies, professionally and gained excellent work experience as a Student Ambassador too. The opportunities the University offers are endless and second to none. All lecturers are helpful and supportive and have mountains of experience and knowledge for students to learn from! Overall I cannot commend this University highly enough and would definitely recommend prospective students with Kingston as their options to go to their open days and really consider Kingston as their first options!

    Kingston uni

    I study at Kingston university, sports science which is enjoyable and diverse as we study while also doing weekly practicals. I would recommend this uni as the study to coursework ratio is good. I also play for the football team in the BUCS league which I enjoy whilst it is also adds a social aspect. There are so many sports team to join and various societies. I would recommend this uni, especially with the part time work opportunities

    A really good university.

    I really like Kingston university, the amount of support provided to students is abundant, whether it is for vocabulary and grammar checks to help with financial and problems at home. The environment is amazing as well with a wide diversity of Student, making everyone feel like they are apart of something with a range of societies to join. There are ethnic societies as well as sport societies, hence there is something for everyone. The only thing I do not like about Kingston University is that is does not have much green space as it is a city university and the library is quite small in relation to the number of people that come Kingston. Nonetheless the library has a wide range of books and it’s really nice with different study areas to suit what’s best for you.

    Geography

    The course is good and we have some great lecturers. The structure can be lacking at times with clashing deal lines but I understand that’s hard to get perfect for every student. The overall uni is lacking with the student experience however with sport and extracurricular activities not well backed by the uni and funded. At times I do wonder where all my 9000 a year goes to. Someone’s back pocket?

    I enjoy my geography course. Lectures could be a bit more engaging than just reading off the slide, my class reps are really good and take on everything I tell them and do their best to communicate that with the lecturers

  • Human Geography

    The course and it’s syllabus can be super interesting and fun but most of the lecturers are trash. They show no enthusiasm to teach and deliver lectures as if they were eulogies. Which is a shame, I feel the only thing holding back KU is the lack of enthusiasm.

    Really good course so far and has a lot of different options available in 2nd and 3rd year so that you customise it to study exactly what you want. The uni always has a lot going on like societies and sports and there is something for everyone!

  • Great course content and lovely atmosphere

    Kingston University has a really nice atmosphere, lovely students and some very engaging lecturers. The library is great, I feel that lecturers on my course (Geography) are easy to approach if you need anything, and many of them are very specialised within their field. The course content is exciting, relevant and current. Points for improvement: less time on data sources and more time on all the other modules. Also guest lectures and more events that invite specialists, kind of like what LSE do with their public events.
