  • Nursing
    Great nursing school

    I enjoyed studying here, it’s a brilliant nursing school. However the nursing campus is pretty far from the other buildings so we missed out on a lot of the student union events. This made it harder to meet people outside of our course.

    Great community campus

    I attend the Penrhyn Road campus which due to the proximity of buildings had a community feel to it. At the time, The library and campus lacked enough computers for students to but I’m sure that has changed. Some lecturers were very proactive and invested in their students learning whereas others would simply read a PowerPoint presentation. The university should have supported students more in what their career paths will be after university and what skills they will need for their chosen path. Better emphasis and opportunity should have been provided in the industry so students have a better chance of obtaining work after university.
    Lots of support for students who have low household incomes

    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.
