Kingston University is located in south-west London and benefits from excellent transport links. The lively, student-friendly town has plenty to keep students entertained, whether that’s doing a relaxing nature trail or seeing the biggest music artists at Pryzm nightclub.
The University is spending £118m on campus development to provide excellent facilities for its students.
Their new flagship building, Town House opened in January 2020 and features a three-floor library, dance studios, a covered internal courtyard, cafes and a rooftop garden offering stunning views across Kingston and the River Thames. Their Knights Park campus has also recently received a major refurbishment offering world-class workshops and modern design studios.
Kingston University’s careers and employability team support students in not only finding a job, but also ensuring they have the skills they need to excel in it, such as workshops on interview techniques and pitching.
Students can also develop a new passion by joining over 70 different societies and 30 sports clubs. The Union of Kingston Students also help students set up, run and fund their own societies if there is not currently one on offer.
Students can boost their CV and learn new skills with Kingston’s Language Scheme. There are ten languages on offer and interactive classes are taught by knowledgeable language teachers.
Each year the university sends all of its new students a limited-edition copy of a carefully selected book. The idea is to give everyone the chance to be part of one big book club and have something in common to talk about when they arrive.
