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.

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 opportunitiesView more
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.View more
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?View more
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 lecturersView more
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.View more
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!View more
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.View more
Contact time could be utilised better, although tutor is very helpful.
I would recommend this Uni to a friend. I also enjoy playing cricket and there are lots of options if part-time work available with the uni
I study drama at Kingston and am enjoying it so far; particularly with easy access to the Rose Theatre. I live in a hall of residence, which is cost beneficial and means I can meet people who aren’t just on my course. My course has 4 different with the option to extend in the 2nd and 3rd year with a greater range of options. I currently enjoy more time here, and would definitely recommend a friend to study my course; I have used the free library a couple times but prefer to study and practice in my room. I also in the social life of Kingston as there is a range of the UK and international studentsView more
I study Geography and Business, which allows me to develop a range of skills from a diverse learning scheme. I also currently live in halls which helps you connect with fellow students outside of your subject.
